I’m very pleased to offer this gorgeous circa-1930 chandelier by Virden!
The John C. Virden Company was Canadian-based, at 19 Curity Ave in Toronto. They also had a US presence at 6103 Longfellow Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. You can Google search the latter, and “stand” in front of the massive brick factory. It is now long abandoned, and its countless widows broken. But it wasn’t that long ago that this factory – like countless such factories across America – was teeming with life, and supporting millions of families. This, back when America actually made stuff.

The fixture is from Virden’s Aldersyde line.

I have two more!

The fixture is cast-iron, and this allows lovely detailing. The stem is also really lovely.

The polychrome is original, a deep gold with red and green accents.

All they wiring is new, and the vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.

This fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 19-inches and is 15-inches wide. I can add chain.

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The sockets and wiring are new.
  • The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new chain link precisely matches the original in terms of scale and shape.
  • The polychrome is original and only required minor touching up.
