Three Early 1800s Arc Light Handmade Shades
Handmade shades from Edwardian Arc Lights. An arc light is a lamp that produces light by an electric arc. The carbon arc light, which consists of an arc between carbon electrodes in air, invented by Humphry Davy in the first decade of the 1800s, was the first practical electric light. Each shade has been rewired with an antique brass finish fitting and black braided flex. Each shade requires one B22 lamp and a matching ceiling fitting is supplied. Colour of braided flex can be changed to your preference.
Each shade has been fully rewired here, in Stockport, near Manchester by our small team of experts and are now ready to be installed. We recommend that they are installed by an electrician into a joist or a supporting noggin. To clean dust the brass components and flex regularly with a soft cloth. The glass shades can then be wiped with a glass wipe or a cloth that has been sprayed with glass cleaner. A final wipe with a paper towel will give a polished finish.
