Mercury glass reflector lights from Au Bon Marche Amsterdam
Description: In the late 1800’s/ early 1900’s the famous department store Au Bon Marche had several establishments in Amsterdam as well as internationally. The establishment located in the Bilderdijkstraat 131, 133 & 135 was founded in 1909. These mercury lights used to display the luxury goods in the shop windows of that department store in The Bilderdijkstraat. After closing down, a former employee rescued these by taking them out in the early 1990’s
We haven’t been able to get any additional information on the maker despite the clearly visible labels.
We bought just the shades so we have fitted the lights with matching old brass galleries from the same era.
Materials: Brass and glass
Dimensions: Diameter: cm – Height light: cm
Technical details: The lights are equipped with E27 sockets.
Condition: The shades are in amazing condition, almost like new. The galleries show some wear consistent with age.
