Antique ceiling lights of a special kind: Art Deco hanging lamps
A nice variety of antique ceiling lights can be found, inter alia, in the Art Deco style. Wonderful Art Deco hanging lamps of all kinds usually combine crystal glass and chrome in various ways. From abstract parts to artful cuts in the glass to great coloration in pink, amber, yellow and blue tones, there are many things to be found in the Art Deco hanging lamps section. The chrome usually serves as a holder and visually complements the crystal glass. Often these Art Deco hanging lamps are fitted with frosted glass instead of clear crystal. In turn, this frosted glass is sometimes decorated with colorful speckles or filigree lines and fine patterns. What makes antique Ceiling Lights from the Art Deco period so special is the use of unconventional and special designs and shape which is a typical feature of the Art Deco era. Art Deco style lives from its unusual and special forms and luxurious materials. This can be seen in some Art Deco table lamps and mantel figures particularly well: For example, there are used luminous, crystalline balls as a light source on marble slabs, then there is usually still a beautiful sculpture made of bronze or alabaster, both are stuck on a marble base. So the functional light source becomes a beautiful piece of art while still being functional. And we also find this artistic design in the design of antique ceiling lights.
