French textile factory lights (Type 1)

Luminaire Reference: 12_1466

Stunning run of vintage French prismatic lights by 'Holophane' salvaged from the main spinning room of a textile factory established in 1911 in Tourcoing, Lille, France. The lights were installed during a period of refurbishment and expansion in 1956. Prismatic glass shade embossed 'Holophane France' with original polished brass gallery. Some slight imperfections within the glass prisms adds character and emphasises the age and industrial heritage of the products.

Supplied with new bayonet (B22) lamp holders, 2mtrs of brass suspension chain, traditional old gold braided cable and ceiling mounting plate.
