eBay watch: 1970s Erco glass and chrome ceiling light

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


Something very distinctive and very much of its era – this 1970s Erco glass and chrome ceiling light.

A mix of space age and modernism, the lampshade is made of brushed aluminium, featuring a long cylinder with a funnel base decorated with circular perforations at its base. It also has a large rim that's been lacquered white on the inside to maximise light reflection. Around that is a glass sphere, which rests on the bottom rim of the metal.

As for condition, it is described as being in 'very good vintage condition' and 'in full working order', with just a few age related scratches and marks on the white lacquer work inside the aluminium lampshade.

If you fancy it, the price right now is 99 pence.
