Limburg Flush Lights, a Pair, Purple Glass and Brass, 1970s, German Hillebrand

About

Limburg flush lights, a pair with purple art glass on a brass frame, German, circa 1970s. These lights have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Newly rewired, earthed, in full working order and ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install these lights in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. They can be used with a dimmer. These vintage lights, by quality German manufacturer Glashuette Limburg were designed to work as either wall lights or flush ceiling lights. Like glowing Amethyst, these vintage lights have a Futuristic presence yet still a `sense of warmth`. The handmade art glass shade appears `framed` by the polished brass square cover. The glass is finished with a polished brass disc. The design is curious, modern, sultry and sculptural. They would give an elegant presence to a range of interior schemes such as Art Deco, modernist, Minimalist, Hollywood Regency, 1970s glamour, Postmodern, Industrial or contemporary. Each light consists of three parts: the glass shade, a square metal base & a square brass cover. Most impressively are the handmade circular glass shades which have the appearance of Amethyst. The glass is super quality featuring three glass blowing techniques; 'Sommerso', 'Bullicante' & 'Fenicio'. Sommerso can be seen as the glass has two inner layers of colour and a transparent outer layer. Bullicante leaves air bubbles which complement the swirls of purple and brown created from Fenicio. The result gives the impression of age old marbled stone. At the centre of each shade there is a decorative polished solid brass disc. This is positioned slightly dimpled which adds to the sense of depth. The base of each light is composed of two parts: The back portion that screws to the wall/ceiling and a removable brass cover that 'frames' the circular shade. Once the decorative cover is in place the glass shade sits in front. The glass shade is securely held on to the base by two metal spring loaded pegs. This allows for the bulbs to be changed easily. At the back of each base there are 4 metal pegs so that the light is positioned slightly forward from the wall/ceiling. This further adds to the sense of depth. The base has two holes through which the light is safely screwed in place. The bases have a gilt metal finish. Each light carries an (E14) standard small screw light bulb up to 40 Watts. Presently fitted with clear Pygmy light bulbs of 25 Watts which are included in this price. It is possible to use other E14 shape bulbs. These lights are in very good condition. All the glass shades are in excellent condition, there are no chips or cracks. The polished brass surfaces have the original clear lacquer present on the brass. There are superficial marks and some patina in areas of the brass developed under the lacquer in line with age. The metal bases have superficial rubbing in line with age. The original Limburg maker's label is present inside both frames. Limburg Lighting history - Limburg Lighting, also known as 'Limburg Licht', was established as 'Glashuette Limburg' in 1947 in Germany. Read more on our Blog about Limburg Lighting.
