1920s foyer pendant by Lightolier
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this astounding 1920s pendant by the incomparable Lightolier Company!
Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!

The fixture abounds with wonderful details!
The shade is like a donut, and circles around the fixture. The main color is cream (with a yellow hue), with cantaloupe edges. There are stunning floral designs. Gorgeous!
The three candle covers are, amazingly, original, and retain their distinctive decorative bands. Wow. Wow!
The fixture is scaled for a foyer or small bedroom.
When the fixture was made it would have been about twice the price of comparable fixtures by other lighting companies. This premium was for the quality, design, and the Lightolier name. Kinda like the difference between a Chevy and a Rolls-Royce. This premium still applies today.
With new wiring, 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. As well, there are touches of green and brass.
SIZE: The overall length is 27-1/2-inches. I can remove up to 4-inches of chain; I can add chain. The shade is 9-inches wide.
- The only issue is a small chip to the bottom edge of the shade.
- The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
- The candle covers are original. They are in good vintage shape.
- The finish on the ceiling canopy shows some wear.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
