1940 Moderne chandelier
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this dazzling circa-1940 Moderne chandelier!
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 fixture abounds with fabulous details:
1) The finial is a glass sphere!
2) The large shade is metal, and with a glass Hobnail-edged insert. Wow!
3) Above the shade are five glass “wings”. Just stunning!
4) Above the wings is a dramatic flourish!
5) Above the flourish is another glass sphere!
Wholly restored and with new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
DETAILS: The fixture accepts five standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: Silver. Glass.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 33-inches and is 16-inches wide. I can remove up to 9-inches of chain; I can add chain.
- I love writing this: there’s no damage.
- The sockets are original with new wiring.
- The five glass panels are replacements.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
