This listing is for:
ONE chandelier!
ONE pendant!

Sets like this were once common. The chandelier was intended to hang low-ish over a dining table, and the pendant in the living room.

The shades are really gorgeous. They are a pale beige, and have a textured surface. The upper edge is like large diamonds. On the bottom are striking starburst-like spears and concentric rings. Wow.

The finials are also great. They consist of a brass piece, an intricate glass dome, and a coppery disk. Very cool.

The stems are intricate glass vases.

Most of the metal components have a coppery toned finish – an original effect.

The set is not actually restored yet. This will take a week after payment is received. All the wiring will be new, and the vertical wire on the chandelier will be cloth-covered like the original. The coppery finish on the pendant is how both fixtures will look after restoration.

This set will be shipped wholly restored, ready to hang, and with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: Each fixture accepts three standard base 60W bulbs.

COLOR: See above.

SIZE:

  • The chandelier hangs down about 28-inches and is 16-inches wide. I can remove up to 5-inches of chain; I can add chain.
  • The pendant hangs down about 14-inches and is 16-inches wide.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The sockets and wiring will all be new.
  • The coppery finish has been renewed.

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