1940s pewter crystal chandelier. Rare. Very Beautiful


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this rare and remarkable pewter and crystal chandelier!

I’m uncertain as to the exact age of the chandelier. It might be very late 1930s. I believe it’s 1940s. I’m certain it’s not earlier or later.

I’m certain, too, as to its beauty. And rarity. I’ve never offered a chandelier like it. All the metal components appear to have a pewter finish. Nice. Each arm has distinctive crystals. The hurricane shades are particularly lovely; that they remain in situ is frankly amazing. I also like the expressive glass stem.

The chain is original, as is the ceiling canopy.

The exposed wire is cloth-covered like the original.

I would say the the chandelier, at 17-1/2-inches wide, is medium in scale.

To me, finding such a fixture is a special treat. And bringing life back to it is even better. It’s hard to express, but seeing the chandelier literally full of light once again makes my heart sing. I know, I know, kinda crazy.

Wholly restored and with all new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W chandelier bulbs.
COLOR: Pewter.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 29-1/2-inches; the glass finial beads and sphere add another 5-inches. I can remove up to 6-inches of chain. I can add chain. The fixture is 17-1/2-inches wide.

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