I’m very pleased to offer this rare 1930s “Bellefont” chandelier by the famous Gill Glass & Fixture Company!

Gill offered the chandelier in three finishes. The one listed here is “stained bronze”.
I purchased the chandelier because I recognized it as being by Gill. And I had never had one before!!!!!! I was a bit wary though because the chandelier was missing its finial and crystals. I had no idea what these looked like, so was thrilled to find a rare 1938 catalog image! I was able to match the crystals, and I found a close approximation to the finial.
The glass shade is stunning. It features a design of wisteria! Wow. The colors are brown, ivory, and rose.
The shade is topped with an intricate rim.
There are three bulbs. Each socket accepts a 60W bulb.
Al the wiring is new. The vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.
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: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 43-inches and is 18-inches wide. I can remove up to 15-inches of chain; I can add chain.
- The shade has a crack in the center. This is almost entirely covered by the wide mounting disk. There are also some chips to the edges of the shade; these are covered by the metal rim. There is also some scuffing to the shade.
- The “stained bronze” finish is original. It clearly looks vintage. It cannot be polished (the polish will remove the finish).
- The crystals, as noted, are new. They match the originals.
