I’m very pleased to offer this incredible 1930s chandelier by Halcolite of New York!
I just go crazy when I come across a chandelier like this. I immediately realized that it was from the 1930s, which makes it rare. 1930s chandeliers also tend to have – quite wonderfully – a Hollywood glamour about them, as evidenced in the extraordinary tall leaves which surround the stem of this chandelier. Wow. Wow! I also love the glass finial (finials are normally just a glass sphere, so this spear is really great). Please also note the distinctive twisted glass arms.
Remarkably, the chandelier retains all its original glass drops.
Indeed, the whole is all original, including the chain and ceiling canopy. Of course all the sockets and wiring are new, and the exposed vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. The original off-white cardboard candle covers have also been replaced with new off-white cardboard.
The chandelier is an impressive 22-inches wide.
The ceiling canopy was brighter originally but the plating wore off over time. After the images were taken I sent the canopy out to be nickel-plated.
The only way to assure that this fragile fixture arrives in good order is for it to be partially dismantled for shipping. It is easy to reassemble, and will come with instructions. I will also forward many images, and be available via phone for verbal assistance.
So, if you’ve been looking for a high-quality chandelier, highly evocative of the 1930s, then this stunner may be ideal.
Wholly restored and with new sockets and wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
- The bulbs are not included.
- The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs.
- The fixture hangs down 29-1/2-inches and is 22-inches wide. I can remove up to 2-1/2-inches of chain; I can add chain.
