Bakelite Shade Pendant Light

$88.00

Product Code: P013-BLK-BLK

These bakelite vintage reproduction industrial style pendant light shades oozes vintage charm and come with a braided textile cloth cord. They are genuine bakelite (not plastic) and are manufactured here in Australia using the original moulds and machinery of the 1930's. 

This 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.

Features include:

  • Genuine Bakelite Light Shade
  • Original moulds of the 1930's
  • Ideal for home or office decor
  • 1.8 metre braided light cord
  • Give this pendant a vintage feel by adding an old style wooden mounting block
  • Standard Australian fitting

This Bakelite light takes a bayonet (B22) bulb. We recommend from our range the vintage style exposed Squirrel Cage Filament Edison Bulb or Teardrop Spiral LED Filament Bulb to add that finishing touch.
