Pair of early 20th century large bell jar Hundi hall lights

SKU: 3159

This pair of bell jar Hundi lights have a glass hat to the top with a ring. This leaf adorned ring has three hooks designed like birds. Three chains are suspended from these hooks and the main body of the light hangs from these. The glass dome is held to these chains with a brass ring embossed with leaves and c-scrolls. 
This style of glass lamps are known in India as Hundis or Handis and were originally made in Europe and exported to India as lighting for large homes and palaces in the 19th century.  Candles or oil lamps were placed inside the glass bell and the glass lid prevented soot from marking the ceiling.
This pair were made between 1920 and 1940 and would have always been electric.
