1940s quality brass chandelier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this gorgeous 1940s brass chandelier with wheel-cut shades!


The fixture is high quality, and comprises components made of cast brass, like the finials, arms, and stem. The later is particularly long, slender, and just lovely.

And the shades! That all five are in situ and undamaged is remarkable. They feature wheel-cut designs of grapes, leaves, and vines. Yep, gorgeous!

You can use clear-Edison-style LED bulbs.

I attribute the age of the fixture to the 1940s. It might be a decade earlier or later.

All the wiring is new, and the vertical wire is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.

If you own a traditionally-styled house built in the 1940s, this chandelier might be ideal!

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

The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included). You can use LED bulbs.
The brass has been polished but not so much as to remove all the patina. There’s some subtle mottling and age spots
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 39-inches and is 19-inches wide. I can remove up to 18-inches of chain; I can add chain.
The only issue are some subtle stress cracks to the brass dome below the stem. This cannot be seen under normal viewing. And I stress the word subtle.
Four sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators. One socket is new.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
