Vintage 1950's Glass Shades Pendant Cluster Chandelier. 


There was a hugely popular 1960-70s 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. 

The three original vintage 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.
