eBay watch: 1970s Italian sputnik-style ceiling light

Light1

Looking for a feature light fitting? They don't come much more 'feature' than this 1970s Italian sputnik-style ceiling light.

According to the seller, all the storks and bulb holders, plus the half ball and main plate are made out of chromed brass, while the balls are chromed plastic. All are said to work fine, with bulbs readily available at any DIY store (although the bulbs are sold with the light).

All the chrome is 'very good' and the light is working (as you can see above), you just need to fit the plate to the ceiling (or get someone else to do it) and you are away. Size wise, we're talking 16.5 inches across for the plate and 10.5 inches drop.

The price is £105 right now.
