Description

I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary opportunity:
THREE highly expressive late 1940s ceiling fixtures by Globe Lighting of Brooklyn!

This listing includes:
ONE chandelier!
TWO matching surface-mounted ceiling fixtures!

All three fixtures have whopper shades: 16-inches wide!

The chandelier is 18-high, and is ideal for over a dining table. The two surface-mounted fixtures are but 7-inches tall – ideal for, say, an adjacent living room, family room, and/or bedroom. Of course, you could also these glamorous fixtures in your new spa bathroom!

The shades are a knock-out, too! They are pink! A nice soft pink. They feature a dazzling and highly stylized design that rotates around the shade. I just love looking at them. I also love how totally period the fixtures are. They are wonderfully evocative of the era.

The shades have a pebbly texture to their outer surface and this is especially striking when lighted.

Please also note the original finials and all-important mounting rings just above. It’s the small details that make all the difference!

The canopies on the surface-mounted fixtures are also distinctive, with concentric lines and four closely spaced sockets. The canopy for the chandelier is also original.

The fixtures each accept a brilliant 240W!

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

 

DETAILS:

  • The fixtures each accept four standard base 60W bulbs.
  • What looks like brass is, I believe, a brass-like finish. This has been polished but not lacquered.
  • The two surface-mounted fixtures are by Globe, as noted. The chandelier though has a Homart label. I’ve no explanation for this historical anomaly. I do however love curious historical anomalies.

COLOR:

  • Pale pink. Brass. Deep gold canopy on the surface-mounted fixtures.

SIZE:

  • See above.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The porcelain sockets and wiring are new.
  • The surface-mounted canopies had a brass-like finish that was worn off. I renewed this with a deep gold burnished finish.
  • The brass-like finish on the chandelier is slightly mottled. This is not readily obvious (it reads more as reflections than anything).
