partially-painted fiberglass

dome: 39 1/2 x 70 in. (100.3 x 177.8 cm)

Overall in very good condition. This monumental hanging light includes a dome-shaped body comprising a fiberglass exterior and a fuchsia-painted interior, which is supported by a hanging fixture connected to the ceiling through a metal wire. As pictured in the catalogue photography, the fiberglass exterior presents with a range of grey tones ranging from bright silver to medium grey. The fiberglass presents with occasional light surface scratches and scuff marks consistent with gentle handling and use. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
