The large part:
The chandelier is a whopping 25-inches wide. Wow.

The fascinating part:
You know how the top of a real wax candle glows from the flame? Moe ingeniously figured out how to mimic the effect. The candles on this chandelier are plastic but really do look wax-like. Importantly they are made to fit over a standard-size socket except the sockets on this fixture are candelabra-sized. The empty space between socket/candle actually allows light to spill down – and thus, presto, the top of the candle glows like a real candle (see image #4). This is why I purchased the chandelier! I’ve never seen this detail anywhere. I love it!

The whole fixture has a brass-like finish with patina. It will not require polishing.

I rarely get fixtures this large. It will be a knock-out in the right room, and is ideal for a living/dining room, or a kitchen. A large kitchen! For some reason though I envision the chandelier in a luxurious weekend cabin with a high vaulted ceiling. Curious.

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

 

DETAILS: The fixture accepts six candelabra base 60W bulbs.
COLOR: The finish is brass-like with patina.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 31-inches and is 25-inches wide. I can remove up to 6-inches of chain. I can add chain.
CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The sockets are original (and in fine shape). The wires inside the tube arms are also original (and in fine shape, too). I replaced the vertical wire with the same type plastic wire as the original.

SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
