Description

I’m very pleased to offer this astonishing circa-1900 Early Electric pendant!

During most of the 19th-century gas lighting was the norm. Then, very late in the century, electricity was introduced, and gas/electric combination fixtures slowly worked their way into buildings across the country. In the last few years of the 1890s, all electric fixtures started being offered, such as this knock-out.

Wow.

The 3-shade fixture is lusciously, wondrously detailed. I love looking at it.

Scale-wise, the fixture is ideal for a spacious entry hall, or a medium- to small-sized parlor.

The fixture is brass, and I but gently polished it so as not to lose the patina.

The glass shades are deliciously ruffled.

The fixture is ideal for a home built in the late 1890s to, say, around 1908.

With all new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: Brass with patina.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 28-1/2-inches and is 22-1/2-inches wide (shade edge to shade edge). I can adjust the height up/down; just let me know! The shades have 2-1/4-inch fitters.
CONDITION:
The shades have the standard small chips to their fitting ends (which cannot be seen). One shade has numerous chips to its fitting end (which cannot be seen).
The turn-key sockets are in fine shape with new wiring and paper insulators.
Each fitter (the small piece of hardware holding the shades) is subtly different. I stress the word subtle. I only noticed after removing them for cleaning.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
