I had owned one of these UFO lights for decades it had come out of a Kings Cross Sydney night club ( once a very seedy area of gangsters ; prostetution etc...) I sold it recently and low and behold I manage to track down this pair that had been stored in an Italian grandmother's garage for years .They came from the same place.
I think they may have been coustom made for this club .
Hand made yellow amber glass isblown into the copper form. The shape and cutout bubble (windows) are intentional as they give a futuristic flying saucer look to the whole creation. When lit the matt blck fittings do not show so the Flying saucers appear to be hovering in space.
I would love to know who made them
I have just dicovered that these are NOT italian But Dutch !!
Designed by Nanny Still McKinney for Raak Holland .
It`s not copper but bronze patinated brass, yellow cast glass.
