1920s silver crystal chandelier
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this lovely silver-plated 1920s crystal chandelier!
The chandelier has five crystal drops. Just a touch of bling!
When I purchased the fixture it retained most of its original lacquer. This was largely flaking off. I gently rubbed the fixture with 0000 steel wool, removing most, but not all, of the lacquer. It would have been easier to strip the fixture clean, and then polish with silver polish. But the result would have made the fixture look new, and the only-time-can-create gentle patina of age would have been lost.
As you can see in the images, the silver is not BRIGHT but clearly looks vintage with darker areas and some age spotting. I think this is beautiful.
Note the subtle black accents.
All the wiring is new, and the exposed vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.
The fixture is scaled for a small- to medium-sized room, like a dining room.
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: Silver. Black accents. Off-white candles.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 31-1/2-inches and is 18-1/2-inches wide. I can remove up to 12-1/2-inches of chain; I can add chain.
There’s some minor dimpling to the bottom vase.
Four sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators. One socket is new.
The candle covers are new.
The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new nickel-plated chain precisely matches the original in terms of scale and shape.
