This is a French vintage opaline glass coolie pendant light now up cycled with new twisted vintage style wiring, an original vintage brass gallery and a new UK standard bulb holder. This vintage suspended pendant light is in a good used condition as shown in the photos with no cracks. It is made from white milk glass known as a coolie light. This is not a factory made shade, it is handmade so may have some bubbles and light marks in the glass from the making process, these are not cracks. There are the usual few nibbles to the top section under the brass fitment. It was bought at a traditional French brocante market. This is not sold with a ceiling rose as the French roses are usually much smaller than standard UK versions. It can be wired straight into an existing rose or a new one which are readily available at any DIY shop. There is a small selection of vintage porcelain roses in the lighting section of the shop. All the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life, in the case of lights like these this may mean flaws in the glass during the making process, eg. bubbles. This is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal. As such, if you are looking for something 'new' then this is probably not for you. See our online vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds including more of these French vintage lights, all sourced from markets across France.
