1950 HOBNAIL chandelier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this amazing circa-1950 Hobnail chandelier!


The oversize white Hobnail glass shades are matched with Hobnail spheres on the stem. Just stunning!

The fixture would have been in production from about the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s.

The metal components are mostly brass. These have been newly polished.

The finial, chain, and ceiling canopy are all original.

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

Wholly restored and with new sockets and 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). You can use LED bulbs.
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 38-inches and is an impressive 20-inches wide. I can remove up to 17-inches of chain; I can add chain.
The only issues are minor. 1) One shade has a small chip to its fitting end. This cannot be seen. 2) the stepped brass disk on the bottom has two stress cracks. These are not obvious.
The sockets and wiring are new.
The metal ‘donut’ on the stem has been refinished.
The chain is steel with a ‘brass’ finish. The finish is worn so the chain has a two-tone look. This is common.
