1930s chandelier by Porcelier

I’m very pleased to offer this dazzling and RARE 1930s chandelier by the famous Porcelier Company!

For many decades, Porcelier made some of the finest lighting fixtures and house wares (they closed in the 1950s). There’s a book on their work:

I’ve been selling Porcelier lighting for a long time now but this is the first time I’ve ever offered this remarkable chandelier.

The shade is incredible. Unlighted, it’s a smooth, pale beige. Lighted? It utterly transforms! The inner surface is textured and this is revealed when lighted! Wow! I also love the richly detailed chunks of glass at the top edge and on the surface. Wow. Wow!

The stem and ceiling mount are porcelain (!) and detailed with gold (this may be actual gold).

The glass finial is hand-blown glass.

All the parts are original: Finial, shade, sockets, stem, chain, and ceiling mount. Fabulous!

The vertical wiring is new and cloth-covered like the original.

So, if you’re looking for a rare and wow fixture, this 1930s beauty may be ideal.

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

DETAILS: The fixture accepts three standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: Pale beige. Off white. Gold..
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 23-inches and is 14-inches wide. I can remove up to 4-inches of chain; I can add chain.

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage. Amazing.
  • The sockets are original (and in fine shape). The vertical wiring is new.

SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
