Art Deco chandelier ASTONISHING
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary Art Deco chandelier!
I have been selling restored vintage lighting for a long, long time but this is the first time I have ever offered this knock-out!
The five glass shades are incredible. They have long stems, and these magically glow when the fixture is lighted. Wow. Wow!
The restored polychrome is a dark gold with coppery highlights.
The body of the fixture is astonishing, and rich with Deco designs and relief. Gorgeous.
The stem features five “supports” holding Deco buttresses. This is all a delightful visual sham as the center column is doing all the work!
One shade has an old repair to its very top edge (see last image). The repair is some sort of hard compound filling in a large chip. With the repair turned to the center of the fixture, it cannot be seen from any normal viewing angle. One would have to be on a ladder to see the repair. The fixture has been discounted from $1,800 to factor in the repair.
All the sockets and wiring are new, and the exposed wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.
So, if you have been looking for a rare, remarkable, and truly astounding 1930s chandelier, then this beauty may be ideal.
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 31-inches and is 19-inches wide. I can remove up to 5-1/2-inches of chain; I can add chain.
- The only issue is some old damage to one shade. See main description above for more information. This damage cannot be seen from a normal viewing angle.
- The sockets and wiring are new.
- The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new chain precisely matches the original in terms of scale and shape.
- The polychrome is new and expertly replicates the worn original using the same colors, material, and technique.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
