French Handblown Glass Bell Cloche Pendant Light
We have always had a thing for hand-blown French garden cloches that come in two configurations...bell form and melon form. This one is a bell cloche (a little taller and more narrow that a melon cloche) and it has been converted into a hanging light with three candelabra sockets that each accept up to a 75 watt bulb. The fittings are custom-crafted to each cloche and each light is sold with six feet of cord, matching chain and a canopy (all in a matte espresso brownish/black finish). The bell cloches measure ~ 17 inches diameter and the drop from where the three chains meet is ~28 inches Add another two inches to get minimum overall height. Beautiful over a table, in a hallway, or your conservatory, these cloche lights bring the outdoors inside! All cloches have some inherent cloudiness from over 100+ years of mineral deposits, but this serves to diffuse the light beautifully. We presently have four in stock.
