1940s silver crystal chandelier by Levolite
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this fabulous 1940s silver crystal chandelier by Levolite!
I love fixtures like this.
There are five original wheel-cut glass shades. Wow.
There are five original crystal beaded drops. Wow.
There are five original rosettes. Wow.
There is an original glass donut at the bottom. Wow.
And the ceiling canopy is original, and distinctive to Levolite.
The silver-plating is quite worn. I only cleaned the fixture and did not use silver polish on it (save a test area), as this had no effect. So, while the fixture is silvery it is not BRIGHT silver, and will not need polishing. I like the subtle effect. And you will like that you won’t have to polish it!
All the wiring (and sockets) are new, and the vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.
The fixture is high quality and beautifully made. So, why are the rosettes plastic? A historical curiosity!
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 about 40-inches and is 18-inches wide. I can remove up to 18-inches of chain; I can add chain.
Several shades have minute chips to their upper edges. I mean minute.
One crystal sphere has been repaired. This is hard to notice (I only did when washing the crystals).
The sockets and wiring are new.
The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new period-style chain is nickel-plated.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
