Custom lampshades for cold-cast bronze lighthouse lamps
I was asked by a client to make some small stained-glass tiffany-style lampshades to enhance some locally-made cold-cast bronze Fastnet Rock Lighthouses - from Reinhart Bronze in Glengarrif.
These little six-sided lampshades measure some 7" tall and 4" diameter, and are designed to easily fit on top of the brass lampholder in the same way as a fabric lampshade - but much nicer!.
The 'canopy' on top of the lamp is removable to facilitate bulb-changing, the lampshades are supplied complete with a cool-running, energy-saving compact fluorescent or led bulb (we don't recommend normal filament bulbs as they would produce too much heat).
These particular lamps were made from an attractive wispy white glass for the sides of the lamp (with added wire detail to represent the individual panes of the lighthouse), and black irridised glass for the canopy. Other colour combinations are possible for the glass - please enquire when ordering or visit the studio to select from over 500 different colours and styles.
All solder-work was treated with a patina to darken it, and then finished with a wax polish.
Price depends on the specific glass chosen, but will be in the region of €80 each.
Delivery 2 weeks or less.
These delightful lampshades can also be seen and purchased in Seymour Jewellers, Skibbereen.
