In 1887, England declared an imperial holiday to commemorate Queen Victoria’s 50th year on the throne—her “golden jubilee.” Public celebrations occurred across the empire. Photographs from India show a distinctive array of glass lanterns illuminating the occasion, representing the hybrid of Anglo and Indian design sensibilities. Hampton reproduces these historic, mouth-blown glass lanterns. While the oversized bell jar originally held a reservoir of whale oil, we suspend a candelabra array to provide warm light without the mess. The upper shade deflected the oil’s thick smoke to prevent it from staining the ceiling. Hampton comes in four metal finishes and three glass options, allowing you to customize the look to your own décor.
We're sorry, but we are no longer going to carry some of the items in your cart and have limited stock. We have changed the quantities for the items below:
As you all are aware, as of September 2018 a 10% tariff has been imposed on a number of products, including lighting fixtures.
At this time, we have decided against a general price increase and will absorb all imposed current tariffs. Effective January 1st, 2019, we have increased prices across the board by 5% to cover cost increases for materials and labor.
Thank you for your support and best wishes for 2019!
