Other versions: This 1960s cascading chandelier was probably made in several versions.

A very special chandelier with the looks of many companies. The big black acrylic ceiling mount/canopy is rare. No information to be found about it. It also has no label. The mechanism to connect the glass diffusers with the brass socket is also rare seen.

Philips and many other companies produced lamps in this style. But they are all different. Got an idea? Please use the contact form to send us a message.
