1930s Art Deco aluminum pendant.

I’m very pleased to offer this very large 1930s Moderne aluminum pendant!
Moderne is an aesthetic that developed after the Art Deco period. This aesthetic was relatively short lived, and reached the height of its popularity in the late 1930s. Emerald City, in the movie Wizard of Oz, is Moderne gone Hollywood. Many lighting fixtures labeled Art Deco are more accurately Moderne.
The shade is a whopping 20-inches wide, and the length overall is 44-inches. I believe that I can reduce the length of the vertical stem.
The fixture accepts a 500W bulb. This brilliance is thrown back up to the ceiling, resulting in a bright but highly diffused light quality.
Originally, this fixture would have been used in a commercial setting like a department store. Today, such a fixture is prized in residential settings. It would, for example, be a knock-out in a kitchen.
With new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
DETAILS: The fixture accepts one Mogul-base 500W bulb.
SIZE: See above.
- I love writing this: there’s no damage.
- There are subtle surface dings, scratches, and small spotting. None of this is readily obvious. There is no pitting.
- The fixture is aluminum. This seems to have a clear lacquer finish, and with some areas painted silver (note how the shade is two-toned). The paint on the ceiling canopy was badly scratched. I stripped it off, and polished the underlying aluminum.
- The socket is original with new wiring.
