Pavement light??
« on: June 21, 2005, 11:48:46 AM »
I'm not sure what this is.  It's something the Oxfam shop's given me - amazing they didn't throw it out really, they're pretty canny there!  :twisted:

It's a shade over 5" in length, has a 'quilted diamond' shape to the upper part, and the base is shiny (well, with wear) and glossy.

Is it a pavement light?  Can't think what else it can be.  It's not good enough quality to be a lens of anykind, and the glass is yellowy...any ideas?

Looks like a typical sort of pavement light pattern, like this one from Luxcrete.  Yours seems a little on a thin-walled side though, it should be pretty heavy glass.  You didn't include an underside shot, so hard to be sure.  Perhaps an architectural block for walls, non-load-bearing?  That sort of pattern is used in glass blocks to obscure the view, like these new ones.   --ian

Ian, my husband suggested a deck light for on a boat, after seeing something like it on an old ship once.  I don't even remember it, but he saw Max's pic and said it reminded him.  :roll:  

Are deck lights like pavement lights?  :?

Leni & Ian thank you.   :D

Well, it could be a deck light - I don't know, I'll have to keep an open mind on that one!

It does look like Ian's pic of some non-loadbearing wall lights though, although the rubber flangey bit has come off...also they seem to have a yellow hue, which this one does.

lol!  I have to price it now - anyone want it?  Name your price!   :D
