Large glass flush mount by Kaiser, Germany, mid-20th century.
The light features an impressive piece of handcrafted and heavily textured clear glass - redolent of tree bark - which is held in place by three screws. The ceiling plate is a neutral silver-lacquered metal, with six ceramic bulb-holders installed, each taking a small screw-fitting bulb (E14). In order to protect this fixture for the future, we advise low heat bulbs are installed (eg LED). The original chrome-plated screws are supplied, but this light could be finished using either brass or chrome screws, as suits your project.
The piece is in good original condition; new wiring will be required to suit your local needs and regulations. There are some losses to the chrome finish of the original fixings, and some fading of the backplate lacquer with use; due to the age and nature of this piece there may be minor imperfections in the glass. Please note this is a heavy piece which will require suitable installation.
- Diameter of glass: 49.5cm
- Height of glass only: 9cm
- Height from base of ceiling side of plate to dome of glass is approximately 13cm; this leaves a gap between the glass and the ceiling of approximately 4cm, allowing light to project beyond the glass.
