A series of English brass and moulded glass ceiling lights,
the cylindrical glass shade on long tubular rod suspension,
We have a quantity of these ceiling lights available. They have been kept in storage for some years having been removed from the Sheldonian Theatre in the 2004 renovations.
The Sheldonian is a remarkable provenance from which to have salvaged fittings. Completed in 1669 it was Sir Christopher Wren's first significant architectural work. The ceiling is a marvel and represented an engineering breakthrough.
The Theatre is the seat of the Oxford "Congregation" and serves as the venue for numerous University ceremonial functions including Matriculation as well as Concerts and other events.
