I’m very pleased to offer this glittering circa-1965 gold and glass chandelier by the incomparable Lightolier Company!
Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!

The metal frame appears to be gold leafed.
Most of the glass drops, and the glass beads, are clear glass. Interspersed with these are pale gray glass drops. The effect is subtle but distinctive.
The whole abounds with glass drops. Dazzling. All are original.
The chandelier is 20-inches wide.
This fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
DETAILS: The fixture accepts candelabra base 60W bulbs.
COLOR: Gold. Glass.
SIZE: See above. As well, the fixture is 28-inches long. I can remove up to 6-1/2-inches of chain; I can add chain.
- The only issue is minor. Some of the glass drops have small chips. I only noticed when individually cleaning them.
- The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new paper insulators. The wiring to the sockets is original, too, and also in fine shape. I replaced the vertical wire.
- The candle covers are new.
