You can never have enough of these in your tiki room or your back yard...so here yah go .
It's nearly impossible to find original glass float lamps as you well know, with
the advice and feedback from some of the TC O'hana , I have tried to create a
vintage style float lamp with the same look and feel of the originals. 12" netted
glass float ball swag lamp for your tiki room or outdoor tiki ambience.In the
late 40's thru the early 70's these style of glass float lamps adorned the
ceilings of some the most famous tiki establishments known.Kon Tiki Ports,
Trader Vic's, Kelbo's, Don the Beachcomber,The Luau-Beverly Hills and The Islander
are just a small list of tiki establishments that had these hanging from their
ceilings ..... during the golden era of tiki .

These colored glass float balls have 2" hole cut in top with diamond drill bits
.....not an inexpensive proposition but worth it based on the final results.
The inside of the glass ball has been frosted to give the float lamp a glowing
effect and diffuse the light just like the vintage lamps were created.The
interior light fixture is custom made and well thought out with several trick
features to it.The fixture has a weather proof solid brass extension part
which drops the light bulb more towards the center of the the glass globe ,
thus creating an even over all light dispersion when lite.Secondly there is
a spring loaded finger clip which keeps the fixture snug against the inside
glass ceiling , as well as makes for easy light bulb changes .The spring
loaded clips are covered in rubber heat shrink- fitting snug over clips so
they do not chip or crack glass when removing or installing new light bulb.
The top cap is finished in an antique gold paint and completely covers cut
hole in the top of glass.Lamp has eight foot long swag UL approved plug in
cord . Email any questions .Local pick up only....no shipping at this time.
Buyer will pay COD cash upon pick up.

$165 each
Includes custom fixture and special size light bulb with six feet of cord .
Swag kits available up to 13 feet in length ,with or without inline on/off
switch.($7 per foot)top quality heavy duty antique brass chain used for swags.

Derek received alot of feedback from TC Ohana and breaking alot of balls..no pun
intended.I can't take credit for the hole cutting though, I subed that part out
to a local glass shop .The final result came out pretty well .I will eventually
have the inside sand blasted for outdoor use with a porcelin socket at an
additional cost.I can swag them also with antique brass chain up to 18 feet.
Colors:Purple , green ,red, yellow, cobalt blue,aqua blue, and light blue .
These would look great in the awesome tiki room you are building.
