    I’m just browsing CW and came across Cokeman1959’s post from 6 months ago showing 2 glass light globes he had bought at GW, minus their top pieces. He was wondering what the rest looked like.

    A little light bulb came on in my brain then….I have a light in use in my house that is similar to his and is complete…, Ralph, take a look and see what you think. :^)

    The pattern in the glass design and the metal bottom part is slightly different from yours but I think you can draw an idea of how yours would have looked in it’s entirety.

    Mine had the extremely long chain and plug-in electric cord of a swag lamp. I removed all the chain, rewired it as a ceiling fixture. It works out nicely in a bedroom of my house.

    My glass part measures 15” long and each metal part measures 4” or a tad more (I stood on a twin bed to measure it so couldn’t be too precise.)

    I bought mine from eBay so Cokeman probably got the better price, plus got doubles!!
    The eBay description called this “Hollywood Regency”. Do CW members agree with that?

    Thanks for taking a look….Comments welcome.

      Gorgeous 50s hanging lamp, what a lovely design alternating clear & frosted glass

      mid century modern Hollywood Regency is probably the most commonly recognized naming for this style. Swag/hanging lamps like these were popular in the 1970s. These are seen in clear glass, frosted glass, milk glass and combinations like yours. The same glass was also used in table lamps. Sometimes the metal parts may have a makers name embossed but often not; the various lamp parts were often assembled by jobbers and sold in big box stores.

      Very much from the 70's, 99% of them are not marked. The style actually originated in late 1967. Pretty much all had nice moulding. A friend bought his parents house and these very close to yours were in them, hanging in the bathroom, not a good light for a bathroom. The ones from Italy I love because they made them to look statuary also and often the large desk lamp came with their own tables about 16 inches high.

      Jenni, thank you for the complimentary comment. It fits right in with my general decor. ;^)
    5. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 2 months ago
      TallCakes, thanks for all the info. I figured from the chain swag and plug-in electric cord, it wasn’t very old. Thanks for confirming the age of it.
      It’s really not very good light in that bedroom either but there’s a huge window for some daylight, so I can tolerate it. :-)
    6. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 2 months ago
      PhilDMorris, Thank you for responding. I can visualize that bathroom with this kind of light and that chain swag…or twin ones on each side of a mirror. ;^) Yeah….not so good for seeing details….poor light and shadows could lead to some funny looking make up.

      Thank you, everyone, for the 12 loves for my favorite light fixture. :^D

      here's a similar one with metal cast by Falkenstein; you might check the metal parts on your to see if it's a Carl Falkenbstein piece
    9. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 2 months ago
      TallCakes, I very much appreciate your input regarding Carl Falkenstein. I looked him up and looked at examples of his work…I do see similarities. I’ll take mine apart within the next few days and look for a label.
      Thanks again. :-)

      I see that I must have fallen asleep on that comment as I misspelled and forget the link:
    11. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 2 months ago
      TallCakes, I sorta noticed the absence of the link and the mid-spelling but you gave me enough to put me on the right track….Now, with the actual link, I’m feeling good about mine being Falkenstein. I had looked at a lot of his work online and read about him. I’m looking forward to getting a close look at it now.
      So, all’s well that ends well. Thanks again!

      Gorgeous! These were in the sitting room of a house we had long ago — renovated in the 1970s. It was a double swag setup that was attached to electricity above the entrance (to that room) mirror, and both swags hung, one high, the other lower, just beneath it, to the near right of the mirror. Very heavy in appearance. My vote is a 1970s retro item. :)
