Australian Crystal Glass Limited was established in 1915 in Wyndham Street, Alexandria, NSW, making pressed and hand blown glass. By 1917 hand blowing had ceased and only pressed continued. From 1922 to April 1926 the company became ‘Crystal Glass Ltd’ making items such as the famous glass fruit juicer, and then in 1926 they amalgamated with Australian Glass Manufacturer’s – Crown Glass Works and became known as The Crown Crystal Glass Works Co. Ltd (ref. M. Graham, Australian Glass of the 19th and early 20th Century, p.88). By 1932 The Crown Crystal Glass Co Ltd, was based at Waterloo, and their Trademark resembled that of a ‘map of Australia’. The Crown Crystal Glass Company merged with the American company Corning in the 1972, to become Crown Corning. The dark amber color of this insulator is a rare find and so we have gone to great lengths the re-create this insulator for lighting purposes. It is molded in solid amber glass in the same way the original was made but without the internal glass thread. This allows the lampholder to sit further into the glass leaving room for larger bulbs.
Wired with 3 core cable in braid and a brass plated E14 lampholder with cast brass lampholder cover and brass cord grip mechanism, the small tube bulb fits just inside the glass.
For 120Volt use we use an E12 Bakelite socket, wiring and 4″ J-Box cover. Components are UL Listed but the whole pendant is not.
Most E14 bulbs will fit this lamp and any combination of cable color cord grip color is also an option. An LED will be more usable inside this dark amber glass so image shows LED tube bulb.
Bulb is not included. Recommended bulbs are listed below.
