1920s high quality ceiling fixtures PAIR


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this astonishing PAIR of high-quality 1920s ceiling fixtures!


This listing is for TWO fixtures:
ONE chandelier.
ONE surface-mounted fixture.

Sets like this were once common. The chandelier was intended for over a dining room, and the surface-mounted fixture was intended for a living room.

The fixtures are mostly cast metal. But what metal? I thinks it’s a copper/brass combination, or perhaps a copper/bronze combination. The fixtures are heavy!

The metal IS the finish, save some tiny bits of red polychrome. (The surface-mounted fixture has not been restored yet. It will look exactly like the chandelier after restoration. This will take a week after purchase.)

The ceiling canopies are also amazing. They have a lower vase, and this is topped with a separate filigree piece. That the latter remains (on both fixtures!) is astonishing.

Note, too, the gorgeous amber sphere finials! How are these still extant? Incredible.

All the socket rings are also extant.

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

This set was expensive in its day. As it is today! There’s nothing made today that can compare to the quality and richness of design offered by this set.

Style-wise, the set would look good in Spanish-Revival homes, Arts & Crafts, Mission, bungalows, or Four-squares.

So, if you’ve been look for an incredible pair of high-quality fixtures, this duo might be ideal.

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

DETAILS: The fixtures accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included). Clear Edison-style LED bulbs would look well.
COLOR: Kinda like an old penny.
The chandelier hangs down about 32-inches and is 20-inches wide. I can remove up to 2-1/4-inches of chain; I can add chain.
The surface-mount is 21-inches long, and also 20-wide.
I love writing this: there’s no damage. Wow.
The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
