I’m very pleased to offer this gorgeous 1930s ceiling fixture by the incomparable Lightolier Company!
Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!
When the fixture was made it would have been about twice the price of comparable fixtures by other lighting companies. This premium was for the quality, design, and the Lightolier name. Kinda like the difference between a Chevy and a Rolls-Royce. This premium still applies today.
The fixture is from Lightolier’s SAVOY series. In 1935, the fixture was priced at…$8.35!
Scale-wise, the fixture is not large and is ideal for a smaller dining room or bedroom. Or a larger foyer. The width is 14-1/2-inches.
The fixture retains its luscious original polychrome of antique gold with cream.
Wholly restored and with new wiring, 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: See above.
SIZE: See above. As well, the fixture is 4-1/4-inches high without bulbs.
- I love writing this: there’s no damage.
- The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.
- The polychrome looks great.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
