Photos can only say so much. You will never find more colorful or more beautifully illuminated chunk glass lamps than right here. Decades older than resin fixtures, each of these hanging lamps is an absolute work of art and unique in their making. A metal canopy with hand hammered chain assembly approx. A glass encrusted 8 diameter lid cover w/socket.
The photos do not come close to capturing the lush vivid colors. Some photos show bright white when in fact it is the lighter colors shining through. Also, some of the larger chunks appear opaque, theyre not.
Rich deep color give the lamps a warm comforting effect. These are ceiling fixtures but could be made into swag lights so they could be hung together in a corner... I wish I could keep them. I dont know what the bonding material is lead based?But it is very solid, no loose glass. The maker deftly manipulated the clay into a thin rope, so theyre not all globbed together like so many other chunk lights are. The clay seems to have a green copper patina look. These lamps have been around for 70 odd years so they have a couple dings but being chunk glass it does not detract from their beauty at all. These lamps will undoubtedly be the focal point of the space they fill.
