A Hinkley classic, the ornate Plantation collection features exceptional pineapple shaped clear optic glass that makes a noble statement. The pearl bronze finish has matching candle sleeves and elaborate decorative cast detailing.
An absolutely remarkable feature lighting range incorporating the pineapple. There are so many exotic fruits to choose, yet the pineapple has for centuries appeared in numerous traditional lighting styles and in all honesty looks aesthetically in place. But why the pineapple? And why is it traditional?
In 1642 on Christopher Columbus’s second voyage across the Atlantic, he and his crew went ashore to explore the Caribbean Island of Guadaloupe, it was deserted, but they found stores of recently picked fruit and vegetables, amongst these where large prickly fruits that they had never encountered. The taste was sweet and delicious.
Sugar and sweet tasting food was such a rare commodity in those days, only Royal’s and the extreme wealthy could enjoy these, and so the pineapple became a statement of wealth, it’s image became a monument of this symbol and it’s image soon started to appear in household designs such as lighting and stone features to adorn the residence of the wealthy.
The Plantation large pearl bronze designer four-light lantern, using the pineapple in its design. Immense detail has been captured within this lantern from the cast detail on the ceiling rose through to the curved rosette plumes on the cut glass and the lower finial. The clear cut pineapple globe houses the four lamps that will catch the light causing it to be cast at different angles with a crisp sparkle as it reflects.
Finished in a pearl bronze, this stunning large lantern will look fantastic in a period entrance hallway creating the traditional welcoming theme for which the pineapple has become known. This ceiling light is a tall fitting and will require plenty of ceiling height to accommodate.
Supplied with 152cm of chain that can be shortened at the time of installation to suit your ceiling height, please see the technical information below for dimensions.
