1920s Colonial-Revival silver chandeliers TWO
1 in stock
I am pleased to offer this especially lovely pair of silver-plated 1920s chandeliers with glass drops!
This set includes:
ONE candle-style chandelier.
ONE down-bulb-style pendant fixture.
Sets such as this were once common. The longer candle-style chandelier was meant for the dining room table, with the shorter down-bulb was for the adjacent living room. You can use this set in the same way, or perhaps in your newly renovated kitchen!
Please note the beautifully detailed leaves which the glass drops hang from, and the delicate blue flowers. Soooooo pretty and sweet!
What’s also so nice about this set is how original they are. They retain their original canopies, socket rings, and glass drops. Only the center, bottom drops are replacements, and these are a perfect match and also vintage.
ABOUT THE RESTORATION SCHEDULE:
This set is not yet restored. This will take up to two weeks after payment is received.
ABOUT THE LENGTHS:
The chandelier is now 39-1/2 inches long. I can remove up to 18-inches of chain. I can also add chain.
The down-bulb fixture is 21-1/2-inches long (including bulb). It cannot be shorter but I can add chain.
ABOUT THE FINISH:
The set is, as mentioned, not yet restored. So, the silver-plate is now rich with patina. I can leave it this way (I think the patina is attractive) or I can polish the silver for a really dazzling effect. If you look at the images of the chandelier, the arm just to the right of center has been partially polished, and this offers an idea of how the set could look.
This set is ideal for most pre-1930s home styles, particularly for a Colonial-Revival home, or Foursquare.
- Sadly, the period-correct, hand-painted bulbs are not included. Happily, I will let you know where to get them.
- The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs.
- The down-bulb has Webber turn-key sockets.
COLOR: The fixtures are silver-plate with patina. I can polish the silver bright. There are five flowers to each fixture and these are a pale blue.
SIZE: See above. As well, the chandelier is about 19-inches wide. The down-bulb is about 20-inches wide.
- I love writing this: there’s no damage.
- All the wiring will be new. The vertical wires will be cloth-covered.
- If I retain the original sockets, I will use new paper insulators.
