In 1887, England declared an imperial holiday to commemorate Queen Victoria’s 50th year on the throne—her “golden jubilee.” Public celebrations occurred across the empire. Photographs from India show a distinctive array of glass lanterns illuminating the occasion, representing the hybrid of Anglo and Indian design sensibilities. Hampton reproduces these historic, mouth-blown glass lanterns. While the oversized bell jar originally held a reservoir of whale oil, we suspend a candelabra array to provide warm light without the mess. The upper shade deflected the oil’s thick smoke to prevent it from staining the ceiling. Hampton comes in four metal finishes and three glass options, allowing you to customize the look to your own décor.
We're sorry, but we are no longer going to carry some of the items in your cart and have limited stock. We have changed the quantities for the items below:
As you all are aware, as of 5/10/2019 an additional 15% tariff has been imposed on a number of
products, including light fixtures. This tariff is on top of the 10% tariff that was imposed in January 2019.
We are doing our best to absorb as much of the tariff as possible, however as of 8/1/2019 we will need
to implement a 10% price increase for all our products.
If additional tariffs are implemented in the future, we will review our pricing again at that time.
