This is a French vintage opaline glass coolie pendant light now up cycled with new twisted vintage style wiring with a vintage brass gallery and a new UK standard bulb holder. This vintage coolie pendant light is in a good used condition with no chips just the usual nibbles around the opening from years of use and some light marks as you would expect from item 80+ years old. It is made from white milky glass with a clear rim known as a pie crust light or coolie light. This is not a factory made shade, it is hand made so may have some bubbles and light marks in the glass from the making process, these are not cracks. It was bought at a traditional French brocante market. This can be wired directly into an existing ceiling rose as it is earthed and wired for standard UK electrics. This does not come with a ceiling rose as the vintage and antique French ceiling roses are usually a smaller size then UK fittings and do not normally cover the hole made by an existing fitting. If this is not an issue then see the lighting section of our shop for a small selection of French vintage porcelain ceiling roses. All the items I 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 website  vintage shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French brocante finds including more of these French vintage lights.
