1940s crystal chandelier by Lightolier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this dazzling 1940s chandelier by 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 shade is thick clear glass with an intricate diamond-pattern. Hanging from the silver filigree edge are swags of crystal. Stunning!

The is stem is like a fountain in glass. Wow.

So, if you have been seeking something really spectacular, then this Lightolier may be ideal!

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