Description

I’m very pleased to offer this wonderful circa-1900 Early Electric brass pendant!

BACKGROUND:
For much of the 19th-century, gas lighting was the norm. In the last decade of the century, electric lighting started to make inroads, and gas/electric combination fixtures became popular. During the first decade of the 20th-century, gas lighting waned in popularity, and all-electric fixtures became widely available.

As such, the fixture listed here represents the first generation of all-electric lighting! Which is kinda cool.

The fixture features three stamped fleur-de-lis. The shades also feature fleur-de-lis!

I also love the curvaceous arms, and the elongated finial. Note, too, the beading on the body, and ceiling canopy.

The brass has a lovely patina, which I but gently polished.

The fixture hangs down 21-inches and is the same wide (shade to shade). The fitter is 2-1/4-inches. The ceiling canopy is just shy of 4-inches wide. The fixture is scaled for a foyer, hall, or small bedroom.

All the wiring is new. You can use clear Edison-style LED bulbs, 100W equivalent or lower.

This fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included). You can use LED bulbs (see above).
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: See above.
CONDITION:
I love writing this: there’s no damage.
The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring. Their paper insulators are original and in very good condition.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
