We used to stock these very striking vintage ships’ pendant lights back in the day. We last sourced one well over a year ago – they simply can’t be found any more. Luckily we knew where one was hanging locally, and borrowed it to make a copy.
So we are very proud to present the latest in Any Old Lights exclusive Modern Retro range: a precise copy of an old ship’s light, in cast aluminium, steel and glass.
We’ve stocked a very small run of prototypes in our shop, and they flew out at this price. When you see them in the flesh, they are still more impressive than captured in a photograph.
The devil is in the detailing. The cast aluminum gallery is bulky yet elegant, with lovely ribbed detail. Though a maritime light, there are strong hints of industrial lighting here. A real head-turner in a domestic environment, they would also make amazing bar lighting or restaurant lighting, or even in a hotel.
The steel shade measures 34 cm in diameter and the standard screw-in E27 lightbulb is housed in a sleek glass dome. The overall height of this ceiling light is 26 cm. We recommend using an LED filament lightbulb for maximum effect – any LED wattage would be suitable.
These are wired with 1m of woven-grey three-core flex and come supplied with 1m of chain and a ceiling hook. So you’re good to go!
