1920s pan chandelier


Out of stock


I’m very pleased to offer this lovely 1920s pan-style chandelier!

Pan-style fixtures were wildly popular through the 1910s, 1920s, and into the 1930s, and were used in a variety of home style such as bungalows, Art & Crafts, Mission, Colonial, and foursquare.

The fixture is wonderfully detailed, from the cast-brass arms, stamped-brass socket rings, and ceiling canopy.

The finial is original!

Most of the fixture is brass. This had been very badly overpainted over the years (see last image). I removed all the paint, revealing the underlying bass which had a kinda sorta tortoiseshell patina which I really liked. I retained this, but the bottom dome was too splotchy so I polished this bright. I love the contrast.

The ceiling canopy was missing so I searched and searched for one which had the same kinda sorta tortoiseshell patina. I think it’s a perfect match.

All the turn-knob sockets and wiring are new, and the vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.

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 dimmable LED bulbs would look great.
COLOR: Brass with patina. Bright brass.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 25-inches (minus bulbs) and is 18-inches wide (diagonally). I can remove up to 7-inches of chain; I can add chain.
The sockets are are new.
All the wiring is new.
The original chain was corroded. This is common. The new chain is an exact match to the original.
