French antique bronze plafonnier ceiling light
Elegant French gilt bronze ceiling light dating from the late 19th century.
The mount is in solid bronze. It’s moulded with acanthus leaves and has a warm gold patina.
The shade, in cut and moulded glass, is finished with a matching bronze knop. It’s fitted with a brass socket for a standard bayonet lightbulb, which would be easy to replace. It’s designed to be fixed flush to the ceiling with three screws.
Measuring just 11 ¾ inches / 30cm high, it’s a small light but with a great deal of presence.
Weighs 1.3 kilos
In excellent condition with a warm patina and some minor nibbling to the hidden part of the glass.
