French Hand Blown 19th Century Melon Cloche Hanging Light

About

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 melon cloche (a little shorter and wider than a bell 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 drop from where the three chains meet is approximately 27 inches. Add another 2 inches to allow for the canopy and hook, and the overall drop is approximately 29 inches. 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.
