Description

I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary opportunity:
A houseful of eleven 1920s Spanish-Revival strap-style polychrome fixtures!

This listing is for:

  • ONE 5-bulb candle-style chandelier.
  • ONE 5-bulb pendant.
  • ONE 3-bulb chandelier.
  • TWO 3-bulb candle-style chandelier.
  • TWO 3-bulb flush fixtures.
  • TWO 1-bulb hanging fixtures.
  • TWO 1-bulb sconces.

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.

PLEASE NOTE:
The set is not restored yet. However, it will be shipped fully restored. This will take up to three weeks after payment is received. All the wiring will be new, and the visible wiring will be cloth-covered. Nice. The paper insulators will be new. The original finish on some fixtures looks very good (like the 5-bulb) and will only require minor touching up. Other fixtures will have largely new finishes. Don’t worry, all the finishes will match. I’m good at that!

The polychrome is a deep browny gold. There are emerald and reddish accents. Gorgeous!

All the original ceiling canopies are in situ, as are the lovely dangly finials. Even the sconces retain their original mounting buttons.

This set will be shipped wholly restored, ready to hang, and with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS:

  • The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
  • Each sconce has an on/off switch. As I don’t trust old switches I deactivated these. If this feature is important please contact me.

COLOR: See above.

  • The 5-bulb chandelier is 32-1/2-inches long overall, and is 18-inches wide. I can remove up to 9-inches in chain; I can add chain.
  • The 5-bulb pendant is 13-1/2-inches high. It cannot be lower or higher. It is 19-wide.
  • The 3-bulb candle chandeliers are 27-1/2-inches high. I can remove up to 4-inches of chain. I can add chain. The fixture is 17-wide.

  • All the wiring will be new. The exposed wiring will be cloth-covered like the original.
  • The candle covers are new.
