Ship's Hold Industrial Pendant - Diameter 180mm


From the earliest records of waterborne activity, there was mention the carriage of items for trade.  The practice was widespread by the beginning of the 1st millennium BC, and as early as the 14th and 15th centuries BC small Mediterranean cargo ships were carrying 20 tons of exotic cargo; 11 tons of raw copper, jars, glass, ivory, gold, spices, and treasures from the far reaches of the known world.

The desire to operate trade routes over longer distances, and throughout more seasons of the year, motivated several key improvements in ship design during the Middle Ages. Before the middle of the 19th century, the incidence of piracy resulted in most cargo ships being armed, sometimes
quite heavily, and often escorted by warships, and ships had holds to protect precious and exotic cargo. Accessed by a large hatch at the top, holds in older ships were below the orlop deck, the well protected lower part of the interior of a ship's hull.

The Ship's Hold Industrial Pendant combines simple industrial design with a nostalgic tungsten filament bulb, effortlessly referencing the adventure and enterprise of days of old. The Ship's Hold Industrial Pendant works as an industrial focus piece in a row or as a single feature over a feasting table, drinks table, or wine bar.

Diameter 180mm h 170mm, cord length 1500mm. Accommodates: 1 x Edison E27 60W bulb, included.
