For your consideration is this vintage Busch Bavarian Beer bar light. And, it works perfectly! Right off the wall of the neighborhood pub, this can now be displayed in your basement bar. Busch Bavarian was the original name of our current day Busch Beer. The name was changed to simply Busch Beer in the 70s. I am going to speculate that this light is from the 60s, although I can't find a date on it anyw The style is similar to the "space age" style that many decor items of the 50s and 60's had. The light is largely plastic. T is the curved back bracket which supports the globe (heavy gold plastic), a round light chamber (translucent textured gold acrylic) and the exterior ball with 3 cut out windows (gold plastic). The Busch Bavarian Beer logo panels are surrounded by a gold frame, the logos are raised from white molded panels. The bottom of the support piece sports a raised Anheuser Busch A&Eagle logo on a faux wood panel. All parts are complete and intact.
Please note, this light is "used" it is not in perfect condition. That said, in my opinion it is in excellent shape given it's age and materials. T are three keyholes in the back which serve to hang the light on a hook. Depending on the angle of w you want to mount the light, you can use any of the three holes. T are a couple of spots w the gold paint is rubbed a bit, particularly on the outer ball. The blemishes are very minor. Overall, the paint is in excellent condition, clean and shiny. The photos show the light both off and on, with a nice warm glow. are more details:
