Description

I’m very pleased to offer this striking 1920s strap-style polychrome chandelier!

This type fixture is called strap-style because it’s 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.

Of particular note are the pointy socket rings.

The chandelier retains its original polychrome finish, and in very good condition. The straps have a distinctive two-toned finish: gold with a darker gold. Nice. There are accents of emerald and ruby.

The wiring is all new, and cloth-covered like the original.

The chandelier retains its original finial, chain, and ceiling canopy.

Note, too, the sweet amber glass drop in the center, and the charming little flowers.

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