This lamp is fixed to the ceiling only at its center, and it is kept in place by a counterweight system that allows it to rotate it completely and move forward and backwards.
This lamp was concieved in order to place the pendant light in any part of the room, even if the light socket is usually mounted in the center of the ceiling.


Good original conditions. The shade is intact, without burns or cracks. The metal structure is in its original paint, with some wear (minor scratches). Cracks and small losses to the counterweight's paint as in picture.
