1920s polychrome set TWO chandeliers


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this striking set of two 1920s strap-style fixtures!

This listing includes:
ONE 5-bulb chandelier!
ONE 3-bulb chandelier!

The set is not yet restored. This will take up to two weeks after payment is received.

The finishes need to be restored. The polychrome will be a rich browny gold with cocoa highlights. There will be touches of red and emerald, with orange flowers. Quite lovely. The 5-bulb fixture originally has a striking center blue column; it have one again.

The fixtures cannot be less than about 25-inches long. I can make them longer of course.

All the wiring will be new, and cloth-covered. Nice.

These type fixtures are called strap-style because they are made primarily from flat metal bars, like belt straps. What I love about such fixtures is how curvaceous they are. Just lovely to look at. The style was very popular in the 1920s and 1930s, and used in a variety of home styles including bungalows, Arts & Crafts, Spanish-Revival, Colonial-Revival, and Four-squares.

DETAILS: The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The 5-bulb fixture is 21-inches wide. The 3-bulb is 18-inches wide.

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The amber crystal is new. I can offer other colors. The fixtures did have such crystals originally.
  • I should be able to retain all the turn-key sockets. The paper insulators will be new.
  • All the wiring will be new, brown, and cloth-covered.
  • The original chains are corroded (this is common). The new chains will precisely match the original in terms of scale and shape.
  • The polychrome will be recreated on the 5-bulb and restored on the 3-bulb.
