A set of mid century large spun steel diabolo / conical shaped lights in original paint. From a church hall. 6 available, priced individually.
These are in excellent condition (only very minor localised paint loss) having been taken apart and all components thoroughly cleaned and waxed (micro-crystalline clear wax).The "end balls" protectecting the inside of the shade from the arms of the inner concentric circled diffuser have been changed as the originals were perished)
They have been converted from ceiling mount to hanging (with a chain) as i think they are more adaptable that way but they could be converted back or hang from a conduit steel stem (of any custom length).
New brass screw in lampholders (ES, British made) have been fitted so a large sized globe bulb fits in the perfect position within the light.
They are super quality fittings that can be dismantled easily by hand as they use large knurled brass nuts to hold the main parts together.
Supplied with 1 meter "jack" chain (as shown in photos), 1.5 meters fabric flex ( grey shown but other suitable colours available) and a hooked ceiling rose ( in galvanised steel or heavy malleable iron fittings). Longer lengths of chain and flex can also be supplied to order.

Edward Haes has been dealing in architectural elements and antiques for the past 20 years, initially sourcing most of his stock from disused public buildings and demolition sites.  Some of his architectural pieces can be found on The Hoarde.

He enjoyed the social history of these places and wishes all his later purchases could have the same perfect provenance.

He continues to buy a diverse range of antiques, with a speciality in lighting, mainly from the UK and sells to dealers, commercial and private clients. He is happy to “tune in” to customers projects and help advise on selecting  the correct pieces.  You can also find some of Haes other items on the Decorative Collective website as well.

Viewings are welcome by appointment only.
