Description

I’m very pleased to offer this lovely circa-1905 Early Electric 2-arm 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 pendant listed here represent a new era in the history of lighting. Which is kinda cool.

The brass has a gorgeous, rich patina which I but gently polished. I love the beaded detailing on the body and ceiling canopy.

And the shades! Wow! They are amber crackle glass. Stunning! Rare!

Note, too, the sweet finial.

All the wiring is new.

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

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included). Clear Edison-style LED bulbs would look great.
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 20-inches and is 14-inches wide.
CONDITION:
The only issues are the standard small chips to the fitter ends of the shades, and some minor scuffing to the brass.
The sockets have new wiring and paper insulators.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
