Hanging Lamps

hanging lampsRight. Hanging Lamps and library lamps are made with polished brass castings, brass chains, and hand-blown globes and are designed to be permanently mounted to a standard electrical box in the ceiling.  In that configuration they are typically operated from a wall switch; however, they can be assembled to operate from a key switch on the lamp.  The "drop length" indicated on the lamp's dimensions is the typical distance from the ceiling to the bottom of the lamp.  It is not recommended to reduce the drop distance, but it may easily be made longer for taller ceilings.
