The fixture is breathtaking. The 16-inch shade is thick glass – a delicious kind of apricot color. Gorgeous. The whole surface is rich with arabesque-like designs in relief.
Incredibly, the stem is also glass and features the same designs in relief. Wow.
As the catalog image confirms, the fixture retains its original finial and ceiling canopy.
There is an amazing six sockets and each accepts a 60W bulb, or 360W total. So, the fixture is beautiful and brilliant. (I have not actually rewired the fixture yet; it will be shipped fully rewired and the vertical wire will be cloth-covered like the original.)
This is one of the most stunning chandeliers from a golden age of lighting.
This chandelier will be shipped wholly restored and with new wiring, ready to hang, and with all the mounting hardware needed!
DETAILS: The fixture accepts six standard base 60W bulbs.
COLOR: See above. Brass.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 31-inches and is 16-inches wide. I can remove up to 9-inches of chain; I can add chain.
- There is a chip to the inside edge of the shade.
- The Bakelite sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring.
- The original chain was corroded (this is common). The new chain is period correct.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
