1950s kerosene style LARGE coppery chandelier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this astonishing 1950s kerosene-style coppery chandelier!


I’ve never offered anything like this.

The fixture is electric, but is modeled after a 19th-century kerosene chandelier.

The fixture is also huge: a whopping 30-inches wide!

The images…while dramatic…do not convey just how impressive the chandelier is in person. The large scale, and highly animated components, present a dazzling effect.

A curious detail is shown in the last image. Each hanging chain ends with what looks like a nail. I assume this imitates a function of an actual kerosene fixture?

I purchased the chandelier from its original family. “We’ve had it for at least 60 years.”

The chandelier is ideal for a house in the mountains, a rustic cabin by a lake, or even in a modernist home as an exciting, unexpected counterpoint.

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: Coppery. White.
SIZE: See above. As well, the fixture hangs down about 38-inches. I can remove up to 12-inches of chain; I can add chain.
I love writing this: there’s no damage. Amazing.
The porcelain sockets, and their wiring, are original (and in fine shape).
The vertical wiring is new.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
