Hillebrand large flush light brass & icicle glass

ROOMSCAPE
Large flush light brass & glass shade by Hillebrand Lighting, 1970`s ca, German.

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

While this vintage light is from the 1970`s, with the Brutalist ‘ice’ effect glass, the classical form is reminiscent of earlier Art Deco Lighting. It is flush mount and has decorative solid brass bolts like a sunburst.

At the focal point there is a large handmade Murano glass shade. The quality glass alongside the gold tone of the solid satin 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 substantial sculptural addition to a wall.

The quality clear glass shade is textured with organic curved shapes; the edge simulates a water/ice effect. The outside surface is polished to a shine, while the internal surface is textured & natural with a layer of sparkling crystal shards . The result is a softly diffused light.

The removable glass shade has 3 holes along the side, and is secured to a large circular quality solid satin brass plate through 3 large decorative solid brass bolts around the circumference. These bolts screw into individual metal arms extending from the satin brass base. The glass shade sits securely in place and can be easily removed to gain access to change the light bulbs.

The round base is in satin brass which reflects a warm tone. The base can easily be screwed to the ceiling or wall through 3 holes situated in line with the 3 arms that hold the shade.

This large flush light carries 4 standard screw E 27 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. It could take other E 27 light bulb shapes for a different effect.

This vintage light is in very good condition. The glass shade is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The solid satin brass surfaces have the original clear lacquer on, and are in very good condition with a warm age patina.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport the shade will be removed, bubble wrapped & boxed individually. Together these pieces would fit securely into a box ideal for shipping.

Additional dimensions:

The diameter of the brass base alone is 42 cm.

The diameter of the glass shade is 45 cm.

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.
