Description

I’m very pleased to offer this incredible 1940s crystal chandelier!

I love that the chandelier has such a strong period aesthetic.

There are five chrome-plated arms. Under each candle is a glass bobeche, and these each hold an incredible twelve crystal drops. Stunning.

The bottom of the chandelier has a gorgeous, lushly detailed glass bowl.

Above the bowl are five dazzling glass feathers. Wow. Wow!

The stem is a glass vase, and with feather-like designs.

All the wiring is new, and the vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original.

It is hard finding such a wonderful chandelier from the 1940s.

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

DETAILS:

  • Sadly, the period-correct, hand-painted bulbs are not included. Happily, I will let you know where to get them. Also, and flame-style bulb will look quite well.
  • The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs.
  • The ceiling canopy, and finial, are original.

COLOR: Glass. Chrome.

SIZE: The fixture hangs down 30-1/2-inches and is 20-inches wide. I can remove up to7-1/2-inches of chain; I can add chain.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage. Amazing.
  • The sockets and wiring are new.
  • The candle covers are new.
  • The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new chain precisely matches the original in terms of scale and shape.
  • The fixture was missing most of its crystals drops when I purchased it, and most of what remained was chipped. As such, all the crystals drops are new.
