An antique opaline glass Chiropodist's advertising pendant light.
A rare survivor featuring some fantastic workmanship, the opaline glass cube shade adorned with it's crisp, black advertising & topped with a brass 'beehive' gallery & hanging hook. Emitting a soft glow once lit creating a superb decorative piece, the like of which are becoming increasingly difficult to come by.
Advertising pendants / trade signs such as this were once relatively common in 1920's & 30's in England & were usually hung above the doorway of doctors medical professionals practices.
Wear commensurate with age, the usual wear & tear, good overall condition with nibbling to the rim of the shade which is hidden under the gallery once in place. The shade has lettering to two of the four panels & although a perfect fit with excellent colour, the brass gallery is likely later than the shade.
