A pair of Blown-Glass Bell Lanterns
A pair of bell-shaped blown-glass ‘cloches’ made into lanterns, the clear glass with a slight tinge of grey/green. Traditionally used in agriculture to protect delicate plants (such as lettuces and strawberries) from frost, our workshop makes lanterns from these blown glass bells, electrified to Australian safety standards using pale gold-coloured silk electrical cords. Note the wonderful ‘wobbles’ and trapped bubbles of the hand-blown glass technique. These lanterns are fitted with brass chains and ceiling cups which can be adjusted to a required length.
Price is for each.
Condition report: In excellent condition, fully wired to Australian safety standards using pale gold sik electrical cords.
