This pendant fixture consists of glass and metal. The black toppart of the Big Dipper used to be hidden in the ceiling, this way only the slight opaline glass and the brass-looking ring were visible. We didn’t want to hide this beautiful part, as it reminds us of the Milky-way and it brings a certain elegance to the fixture.

The Big Dipper originates from a military site in the outskirts of Berlin. It was found mounted to the ceiling at the theatre of the complex, where it illuminated the entertainment of the Soviet military staff. Many of these military complexes are located around the German Capital, most being built by the Nazi’s during the Second World War.

All our lights are restored by hand with the greatest care. As unique piece of heritage, we seek to preserve the light’s authentic appearance. We present the lamp in it’s original finish, or re-finish the light in it’s original color. The lamp has been completely rewired to current standards, and fully assembled and tested to European Legislation, We hope that it may be preserved for many centuries to come.
