1915 Automobile Headlight Lens Pendent

About

For 30 years I've owned and restored all types of antique automobiles. So it was natural to look for inspiration there. Brass-Era cars were from the teens and had large highly graphic lantern like headlights. Pictured above is our newest design. It uses an 8 inch round prismatic glass lens in the simplest and most elegant way. No need to over design when the glass is so special. It took some time but we were able to assemble a collection of matching lenses. I'm told that these were used on the early Ford Model T headlights. One of our good customers grouped a number of these lamps together to create an amazing chandelier.
