Description

I’m very pleased to offer this stunning 1930s chandelier by Lightolier! 

The fixture is from Lightolier’s SAVOY series.

Note: I have another SAVOY fixture listed. It is larger and has glass shades.

ABOUT LIGHTOLIER:

Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!

When the fixture was made it would have been about twice the price of comparable fixtures by other lighting companies. This premium was for the quality, design, and the Lightolier name. Kinda like the difference between a Chevy and a Rolls-Royce. This premium still applies today.

The fixture is made of cast-iron and retains its original polychrome of rich gold and ivory. Striking!

I love the detailing picked out in ivory, and the over-scale hexagon chain hook on top.

Note the original chain link, original canopy, and new cloth-covered wiring.

The fixture is scaled for a medium- to small-sized room.

Wholly restored and with 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: See above.

SIZE: The fixture hangs down 15-1/4-inches (without bulbs) and is 15-1/4-inches wide (without bulbs). I can add chain.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
  • The polychrome is original and in excellent condition.

SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
