Vickers Vintage Industrial Holophane Pendant Lighting Light Shade

Industrial lighting. The Vickers vintage industrial pendant light.

These are truly unique industrial lighting shades salvaged from Forgemasters Sheffield with original Holophane glass. These industrial Holophane lights will look fantastic in any large room or hallway. Certainly ideal for period properties, high ceilinged housing, pubs and restaurants, industrial apartments and also lobby’s.

Each pendant light is mid 20th century and has been recently taken down from the foundry maintenance building of Forgemasters Sheffield. Despite the lights coming down covered in years of dirt and grime and have been spectacularly polished to return them to their former glory, additionally, each one of the pendant lights has its own little dents and scuffs which only add to the industrial look. As you can imagine due to the environment the lights were originally made for they consequently are of the highest quality in manufacture and will not disappoint.

The shades are particularly  heavy weighing just over 9kg each, with the result that they are supplied with a heavy duty industrial chandelier fitting, 2 crimped steel cables and standard black electrical lighting cable. They also come complete with modern industrial bulb fittings.

The drop on the cable is 1 meter maximum, however this can be shortened as required. Please message to arrange desired length. It must be remembered that specialist tools are used here and subsequently as long as we know the full drop length from ceiling to bottom of shade we will cut and assembly the cables in house.
A bulb is not provided. The bulb fitting is a standard E27 screw fitting.
