1950s rectangular pendants by Benjamin

Luminaire Reference: 16_2783

A run of unusual 1950s rectangular enamel pendants, by British manufacturer 'Benjamin'.

These enamel pendants were reclaimed from the basement archive of Bristol University Library, where they were originally installed in the 1950s.

Refurbished and reassembled by hand, the lights are complete with their original installation and manufacturers labelling, cast detailing on the polished brass galleries and deflectors. The side vents on the shades will allow for a degree of up lighting, adding a lovely feature to these unusual pendants.

Each light is supplied with a new screw (E27) lamp holder, 2mtrs of suspension wire, elephant grey braided cable and a ceiling mounting plate. (If you would prefer another colour cable, chain suspension or an E26 lamp holder for use in the USA, please just ask).

The extract shown is from our own internal manufacturer's archive and taken from an original 1950s Benjamin lighting catalogue.
