The glass lens is clear and undamaged. The ceiling flange is 5 inches in diameter and has four mount holes. This light weighs about 34 pounds.
This nautical antique pendant light has been totally rewired with all UL-Listed wiring and a porcelain bulb holder. It can take a normal screw in house bulb of 100 watts or less. The new wiring includes a ground wire and exits the light from the center of the ceiling flange. The new wiring is rated to work with any voltage under 250 volts.
As brass and copper ages, it turns a golden rose copper color and darkens. It’s absolutely beautiful! You can choose to restore this light to it’s original patina, if you so choose.
Some pieces in this light design have been recast to make the light complete. All recast pieces we made to finish this light are 100% solid brass.
