1910 brass Mission chandelier BLUE shades


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this fabulous circa-1910 Early Electric Mission chandelier with blue shades!

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 represent a new era in the history of lighting. Which is kinda cool.

The distinctive rectangular body hangs from two chains, which connect to a lovely double S-flourish!

And the shades! So rare and remarkable! They are square, and with blue-tinged bottom edges! Gorgeous!

The fixture is scaled for a foyer, hall, or bedroom.

All the wiring is new, and cloth-covered like the original. Nice.

The fixture is brass with a lovely patina.

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 well.
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 29-inches and is 15-inches wide. I can remove some chain; I can add chain. The fitters are 2-1/4-inches.
There’s no damage.
The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
The chains were corroded. This is normal. As such, the chains are new and match the damaged originals.
The set screws are new (these hold the shades).
The brass pipe just under the canopy has a dimple (where the set screw was screwed too tight. This is common).
The patina is mottled, and with some spotting (mostly the ceiling canopy). I find this attractive. The fixture could be polished bright.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
