Engraved Glass Globe Handi Lamp With Fitting - 19thC

An Engraved Glass Globe Handi Lamp With wired Fitting - 19thC. Rather surprisingly they are not Indian, but European in origin. They were exported to India as lighting for large homes and palaces in the 19th century. Candles or oil lamps were placed inside the glass bell and the glass lid prevented soot from marking the ceiling. Many survived on the tall ceilings unlike their European counterparts which were taken down and smashed when electricity arrived. Our antique handis are mostly 19th or early 20th century. 

Please note that this is hand blown old glass and may have small imperfections and some small scratches, but it is not surprising for glass that has survived around 100yrs.
The height could be a little less with chain links removed.All wiring is tested in the U.K. Supplied with 1 metre of flex and  1 metre of chain as standard. If you require a longer chain & flex please contact us for a quote.
Brass ceiling hooks can also be supplied if required at extra cost
