Diamond Cut Glass Hundi Lamp wired with a 3 Way Brass Light Fitting. These glass lamps are known in India as Handis or Hundis named after a cooking pot. Originally they were made in Europe and 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.
This one is made in India. Please note that the glass may have small imperfections and is a good copy an old handi. All fittings and chain are made of brass which has an antiqued finish.
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.
