Murano art glass & brass flush light, Hillebrand

ROOMSCAPE
Murano art glass large flush light with a solid brass base by Hillebrand Lighting, 1970`s ca, German. The solid brass base is finished with an elegant polished effect.

Thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Newly rewired, earthed, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install this light in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It can be used with a dimmer.

This large vintage light, by quality German manufacturer Hillebrand, was designed to work as either a ceiling or wall light hung vertically.

While this design by Hillebrand dates from the 1970`s, with the Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass, the classical form is reminiscent of earlier Art Deco Lighting.

At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano glass shade. The quality glass alongside the brass gives this Minimalist design elegance. This light is ideal for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Classical, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist or Contemporary, perfect for when a flush light is needed with low ceilings or as a large decorative feature on a wall.

The round glass shade has a swirling pattern of milky white & clear blown cased glass. It has been polished to a gloss finish on the external side. The result is a softly diffused light and lots of movement. The shade rises at the centre creating a convex shape.

The removable shade is secured to a large circular quality solid polished brass plate through 4 large decorative brass bolts. These bolts screw into individual vertical cylindrical solid brass columns extending from the brass base. The glass shade sits securely in place and is easily removed to gain access to change the light bulbs.

The base is screwed to the ceiling or wall through 4 holes on the main solid brass plate. Behind the main polished brass plate there is a secondary inner circular gilt metal plate with a vertical trim that attaches flush to the wall, adding strength and creating depth to the design.

This light Carries 3 standard E 14 small screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each. At present fitted and photographed with 25 Watts clear Candle light bulbs, which are included in the price. The lamp holders are covered by decorative solid brass tubes.

This vintage flush light is in very good condition. The brass surfaces are sound with the original clear lacquer present and minor marks & patina in a few tiny places in line with age & wear. The glass shade is in good condition with no chips to the edges or cracks, and only minor wear around the holes, on the backside, where it screws to the base in line with age & wear.

Additional dimensions:

The diameter of the glass shade is 39 cm

The diameter of the solid polished brass base is 41 cm.

The diameter of the inner gilt metal portion of the base that attaches to wall/ceiling is 32 cm

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport, the glass shade would be individually wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap and soft cardboard. Together with the base they would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing peanuts ideal for posting and shipping.

We have available in stock a complementary flush light of same design & dimensions but in satin brass, in case a pair is needed, please look at item # 11083 on this site.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
