Absolutely beautiful work, Andy!

They are all Crestworth Astro Nordic DeLuxe (aka Living Jewel) lamp bodies, complete - but were empty of their original glitter fill - after the Lunar/Living Jewel project.

Repurposing them (via wall-mounting) meant they no longer needed the black Bakelite base-ring, so we carefully removed this; which had the bonus effect of exposing the whole (chrome or copper) goblet, seen in its full glory in the Cosmos and Nordic models of this series. The base ring obscures it slightly, perhaps.

I think it's the lamp's perfect lines - with the original goblet fully displayed - that give the killer effect: it's quite simply a beautiful design.

So these are, indeed, not original Crestworths, but made from parts? They're beautiful.

Ah ha, I was thinking a professional electrician must have been involved with this installation!

Top notch display!

It was a major job installing them (dot-and-dab walls), but fortunately a good mate is a qualified  electrician...

The wiring is on a self-contained mini-circuit, with a master mains switch, but as you can see, each sconce has its own isolating switch for emergencies/bulb changes etc.

The set of four coloured LJ fills (on the other uploaded photo) is probably more striking, as the only existing assemblage of these "lost" fills, but this clear-fill display is my favourite, with the two glitter types, and the different anodised bases.

Obviously, they're re-purposed lamps, and not original, unlike those superb Cosmic Windows, so we're talking different leagues here, but I'm very happy with them... they took a lot of careful planning and patient, skilled work.

Super nice!
It's obvious that display took some doing! 
Where are the lamp wires going?
