Product Description

A beautiful pair of holophane pendant lights…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these pieces, we understand they are of French origin and could date to the mid part of the 20th century, onwards. These are stunning on the eye and ooze elegance. “The term “Holophane” is used generically to describe clear molded glass or crystal shades and globes with parallel or crosscut prisms”. The lights are in used, yet beautiful original condition. The lights are without any major cracks, yet some small surface abrasions shows off their charm and authenticity

The lights themselves have a few surface scuffs and some small chips to the glass, but nothing that affects the structure of both pieces. The galleries and hanging plates show surface wear and tear with some tatty and dirty areas (we’ve only given them a simple surface wipe). The holophane glass is beautiful made, and the mix of ‘brass chain and plate’ makes these unique and stunning on the eye…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The lights are in great condition, yet there are some small surface scars and abrasions and some tatty areas in places. Please note however, there are some small surface cracks or losses to the lights (as pictured), yet we would suggest these were unnoticeable when hung. We don’t believe these small areas are detrimental to the overall structure or look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : Although we are offering these lights in full working order, these haven’t recently been PAT tested by us, simply sold as found. The light bulbs are also not included

Dimensions : Depth : 40cm, Width : 40cm, Height : 57cm (Height refers to bottom of the light to the top of the roof plate – ‘total hang’). The actual height of the glass pendant itself is circa 36cm

Condition : Structurally great, some surface marks and scratches, a little tatty and dirty in areas, some small chips and losses to the glass, some rusty areas, in full working order yet not PAT tested by us
