The Dahlia 6-Light Chandelier is a wonderfully decorative, British-made luminaire from century-old Cotswolds designers, David Hunt Lighting. The centre of the fitting and each lamp-base are crafted from an ivory-coloured resin, enveloped by a golden dahlia, and complemented by solid brass arms and cream fabric shades.
Height adjustable at the point of installation, the Dahlia 6-Light Chandelier comes complete with a 500mm braided cream cable and a brass ceiling plate. A choice of other fittings in this range is available from Lyco, for a harmonised lighting scheme.
This fitting is ‘F’ certified, making it suitable for mounting directly onto a normally flammable surface. This encompasses most normal building surfaces with a minimum 200°C ignition point (including wood), but excludes easily flammable materials such as polystyrene or textiles.
Class II double insulated
This is a double-insulated Safety Class II fitting requiring no connection to electrical earth, which extends its suitability to any property without an earthed lighting circuit.
The Dahlia 6-Light Chandelier requires 6 x 40W maximum candle bulbs (sold separately) with E14 Small Edison Screw (SES) caps.
Since incandescent bulbs have largely been phased out in recent years, Lyco recommend energy-saving halogen bulbs as an economical alternative. These typically offer 20-30% savings in running costs over original bulbs, and have twice the lifespan.
Even with a greater initial expense, an LED candle bulb easily pays for itself with an 80-90% reduction in running costs over a filament bulb, and a vastly longer lifespan.
The dimensions of the Dahlia 6-Light Chandelier are:
- Height: 380-780mm
- Diameter: 580mm
