Contemporary-Vintage 1950's Glass Shades Pendant Composition 


There was a hugely popular 1960-70's Dutch children's television series called "Pipo de Clown", which told about the adventures of Pipo and his wife Mamaloe who travelled through the country in their gorgeously romantic 'pipowagen'. When I found these jolly vintage shades, their quirky style instantly reminded me of the Pipo of my Dutch childhood. I also thought that a contemporary Mamaloe may well have happily chosen the lights for her little bohemian home. 

These three shades are all that's left of a large French 1950's vintage ceiling light which used 6 shades in total in upright position. The surface detail design is not unlike that of the shades used in "FIFTY-FIVE", but here conical brass finials fused to the vertex form an integral part of this wonderful clown's lamp shade design.
