Etched Glass Seltzer Water Bottle Pendant Lights, Clear Or Blue; Price Per Light

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Through May 31st: We are offering the seltzer bottle pendant lights at the reduced price of $199 each, a savings of 20% from the regular price of $249.

Etched glass seltzer water bottles have been transformed into hanging pendant lights, either hard-wired or plug-in suspended from a stainless steel wall bracket.

Jewish immigrants introduced seltzer water to America from Europe in the early 20th century. Bottled seltzer water became an integral part of city life in the 40s and 50s. Delivering door-to-door, the seltzer man became like a member of the family sharing stories, gossip and news as he made his rounds. With the empties returned for refilling, it was an early form of recycling. Price is for one light.

In its heyday, there were hundreds of seltzer companies in Brooklyn alone, each one with its own etched logo on the bottles. These glass bottles were imported from Europe where they were hand-blown in wooden molds, the glass exceptionally thick to withstand the rigors of delivery and constant refilling. Light through the etched-glass cylinder of the bottle casts a magical glow that can be softened or sharpened by choice of lightbulb.

Each light has been professionally-wired with UL-approved components including grounded porcelain socket, ceiling canopy and pendant wire with in-line switch on the plug-in version.
