Bakelite Shade Chandelier


Product Code: P310-RND-BLK

This bakelite shade chandelier takes the style of a classic 9 pendant light one step further to give a vintage Australiana feel. In this assortment, genuine bakelite shades punctuate each of the braided pendant cords to create a magnificent boldness in any space. Bakelite was a material traditionally used in shades used by flower growers as they could withstand high wattage globes without melting when strung over fields or hung in greenhouses. The bakelite chandelier brings the feel of this period into your home.

The 9 pendants on this light have the unique advantage of fitting just about any décor you can think of, so you can bring this traditional style country décor into your kitchen, living room or bedroom. Adjust the length of the braided cords, or hang the pendants in different spreads and be delighted with the character this pendant creates in each room. Available only at Fat Shack Vintage.
