Pendant Lamp w/ Vintage Warner Lenz

Patented in 1912, two Warner Lenz automobile headlight lenses are transformed into pendant lamps.  Hanging over a custom kitchen island, the cool LED internal bulbs bring the fine craftsmanship of the early model lenses to life. 
  • The carefully crafted wooden headlight buckets were hand turned to model after the late 1920's fender-seated design. In fact, Roger turned both lights with the lens in place. 
  • The final lamps measure 11 inches in diameter and 15 inches long, with the 9 inch diameter lenses.
Below is an advertisement for the original lens published in The Literary Digest in April of 1919.
