Hand-made Grappe de Verre or Glass Grape Cluster Lights - Handmade in Syria - Please note we mainly offer these as collection only due to their fragility. However, please call to discuss as we can send if necessary (particularly due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.)
These wonderful Grappe de Verre or Glass Grape Cluster lights are a modern take on a very old classic.
Each delicate grape-shaped bauble is hand-blown in Damascus by traditional artisans from re-cycled glass bottles collected from around the city. The bottles are separated by colour, smashed and washed, then melted down and hand blown by the skilled craftsmen.
Available in four sizes (all approximate due to hand-made nature of the product), each one is made up of a cluster of many baubles all individually secured to a metal frame. They make wonderful pendant lights or truly unique table lamps that will sit well in any surrounding.
The lights come ready to be used as a table lamp (with a lead and plug - you will need an SES E14 bulb - the "pygmy" style bulbs that are mainly used for cookers/fridges etc.. and are available from most good electrical stores). If you wish to use as a pendant light this can easily be done - there is a hook on the inside frame on to which you can attach your own style of chain, you will just need to speak to an electrician about converting the electrical components.
We currently stock the light in four sizes in clear glass only. However, it is also available to order in many other colours - please call or email if you would like to place an order for one of the coloured lights (see options below).
