Smoked glass plates suspended from gilt lacquer tubular brass frame with brass fittings and matching box canopy, frosted glass globe hung on painted metal structure. This model is very rare and quite stunning in its simple form emitting a soft glow which reflects beautifully off the glass. Rewired to U.S. standards.
