Rare French 19th Century Handblown Purple Glass Melon Cloche Light
It is exceptionally rare to find purple cloches of this quality with their knobs intact and we were fortunate enough to score two on our most recent buying trip. Normally green in color, these cloches are purple because of the higher lead content in them that poses no danger to you or your installer. We have converted them into hanging pendant lights, each with a triple candlelight cluster that takes three bulbs up to 75W each. The fixture is being sold with a custom-made iron frame in an espresso color, as well as 6 feet of matching cord, chain, and a ceiling canopy with interior cross bar for easy installation. Please see Stock #LCMC 1020 for the other purple cloche, just in case you want a pair. The dimensions below are for the cloche only. When hung, the height from where the three chains meet to the bottom of the knob is 27.25" and you can decide the drop. Minimum drop is 30", if you just want to hang the fixture from where the 3 chains meet, accounting for the canopy and ceiling attachment. If you need a longer cord and chain, please let us know and we can have the piece re-worked to your custom specifications for a modest up-charge. Beautiful over a table, in a hallway, or your conservatory, these cloche lights bring the outdoors inside!
