About

The perfect pair of wall lamps for an Industrial setting such as a loft or offices. They are scaled for exterior use, as well, and would be great as a pair of entry lamps or post lights. The metal is a combination of polished aluminium and brass, with tinted glass panels. Each lamp features a single porcelain standard socket, and is open on the bottom sides. They are very well made and heavy.
