1920s foyer chandelier by Riddle


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this stunning and rare 1920s foyer chandelier by Riddle.


I’ve no idea what style the fixture is! I’ve never seen anything quite like it! I do know however that it’s utterly fabulous and would look great in an Arts & Crafts style home, Mission, or bungalow.

The fixture is aluminum, which retains its original polychrome of very dark gold (almost brown) with subtle accents of ruby and blue. Just gorgeous!

The fixture is designed so that the cloth wiring (new!) ingeniously winds its way up, nestled into the stem. Fabulous!

The ceiling canopy, also highly distinctive, is unique to Riddle.

I show frosted bulbs (not included). You can also use Edison-style clear LED bulbs.

The chain is original.

If you have a foyer, hall, or small bedroom in a 1920s or 1930s home, and you’ve been seeking something really special, this knock-out may be ideal.

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

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 29-inches and is 15-wide. I can remove up to 9-inches of chain; I can add chain.
I love writing this: there’s no damage.
The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
The polychrome required but minor touching up
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
