These type of lighting where popular in old style Victorian houses with high ceilings
very expensive when bought new , a lower priced one from Christopher wray lighting emporium where just under £1600 , this light was supplied by sir William Bentley billiards and cost over £2000 when new !
the photo above is the Light that is for sale ,the other photo’s are just examples of this type of lighting , but they are a much better photo to get the effect of how the light will look above your table .
I am sorry about the quality of the photograph , it was taken by the sellers who used a mobile phone rather than a digital camera .
I can recommend the lighting as I have seen it , it would suit someone with a high Ceiling as stated , but also for someone requiring a more period look to their Billiard / snooker Games room
this light is a Bargain at just £750
It takes 6 bulbs and the shades are made from a pleated cloth in Dark green / Blue ? , this is so much better than those glass shades as they can break when banged with a cue or rest , and the glass will then damage the cloth
with this design that mimics an old Gas lamp , you will not have that problem .
the lighting shade is available to view and collect from very close to Northampton Town Centre , access from the M1 motorway is around 10 minutes away.
you will require a small transit van to move this .

I have found a better photo with the light that is for sale , although most of the shade is not viewed , it can be seen in the back ground , this photo shows its effect when hung . Click on photo for larger image !
the Lighting Shade belongs to a retirement complex , and the Older gentlemen prefer the lighting of a modern high Frequency lighting which they have had replace this very ornate shade.
also the room’s ceiling in my opinion and the rooms setting itself did not suit the ornate light.
please note, this sale is direct from the seller’s , no middlemen fees will be added .I have also found a couple of library photo’s of similar lighting that was also supplied by sir William Bentley Billiards
As you can see from the photo’s these lighting units where all unique designs , and where bespoke manufactured for Sir William Bentley Billiards , the one in the retirement home is selling is very high end designer material , and would suit someone who is looking for that Victorian feel of Luxury , with a period table there is nothing better than a light that looks like it has also come from that Circa of 1890 /1900
I have just checked price’s with another supplier ( Hamilton billiards ) of these type of lighting and the price for each pleated coolie shade is £95 per shade plus vat , so there are £700 worth of coolie shades including vat on this light
and their price for main Brass or stainless lighting is from £1830 to £1890 plus vat . the lamp shades are extra to any light fitting , so these light fittings are around £3000 new at todays prices.
that £750 is aBaragin from the retirement home .
I think these lighting units are Canadian made and are the from a manufacturer called Swanson .
