This is a vintage nautical cargo pendant light that has had some minor modifications to make it more user friendly. The wide bottom of this light is 11 3/4 inches in diameter. The glass lens is 9 1/4 inches in diameter. The light has an attractive beehive style to the copper housing. This light measures about 22 1/2 inches tall from base to the top of the ceiling mount. The brass ceiling mount plate measures 5 5/8 inches in diameter with four mount holes. The weight of this light is almost 13 1/2 pounds. The U shaped bracket design was modified to fit the brass down rod. The down rod in the center will hide the wires going up to the ceiling. The cast brass ceiling mount plate is something we added to this design to allow for easy installation and provide a more finished look. This light has been totally rewired using UL-Listed parts and includes a ground wire. The new bulb holder was made by Westinghouse Electric and takes a normal screw in house bulb of 100 watts or less. The new wiring and bulb holder is rated to work with any voltage under 250 volts. To access the bulb holder, loosen the 5 thumb screws on the bottom frame. Why not shop where the designers shop? Our lights have been used in movie sets, restaurants, bars, and store displays. Our nautical treasures also grace some of the most beautiful homes in the world. These lights may have minor surface wear that includes small dents or dings here and there.
