Bakelite Bowl Pendant Light


Product Code: P282-WHT-RED

These vintage style pendant lights have a warm, nostalgic look and ooze plenty of Australian charm. These type of bakelite light shades were traditionally used by flower growers as the shades are able to withstand high wattage globes without melting when strung over fields or hung in green houses. They were also sold to general stores all over the country so are a real reminder of vintage Australiana. These bakelite pendant lights are available in an array of colours and come with either a white or black braided cord to finishes off that vintage charm.

The genuine bakelite pendant lights are a great little hanging light to use in kitchen lighting, bedroom lighting, cafe lighting or any room looking to add some classic vintage styling. These bakelite bowl shades are also available as a bakelite bowl close to ceiling light to allow continuity between rooms.
