Parisian Prismatic Globe Street Light

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This iconic midcentury prismatic sphere once lighted the thoroughfares of Paris. If you have spent time there you know these lamps well. Since being saved from it's lamp post, this Industrial globe has been rewired for modern, indoor use and the end caps have been finished in black. This is the an original signed Europhane. This lamp is a bit different than the examples we have offered in the past. The glass is a lot thicker and the prismatic pattern is more pronounced giving it a cut crystal look. I think its an earlier example. We love this type of prismatic glass because of the wonderful light they project. The glass is designed to get the most out of a bulb. They are impressive and have a dramatic look. Try different bulbs and produce a new look. These were outdoor street lights so there may be a nick here and there... but nothing important.
