1940s pewter-like chandelier by Lightolier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this distinctive late-1940s chandelier by Lightolier!

The chandelier has a pewter-like finish, with gold accents.

The V-shaped vase in the center is quite dramatic. Love it!

When I found the chandelier, it was missing its original finial, and its glass hurricane shades. Normally, I never buy vintage lighting unless all the original components are still present, but…I could not pass up a Lightolier! I also had a set of late 1940s hurricane shades in storage which I thought would look perfect on the chandelier, and a search through my box of finials revealed an ideal choice. I hope you agree!

The ceiling canopy and chain are original to the fixture. All the wiring is new, and the vertical wiring is cloth-covered like the original. Nice.

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


DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 23-inches and is almost 20-inches wide. I can remove up to 6-inches of chain; I can add chain.

  • The shades have some flea bites at their upper edge (and I mean flea bites), and some chipping at the fitting ends (which cannot be seen).
  • The sockets and wiring are new.
  • The chandelier appears to retains an original protective lacquer finish. I left this in place. The finish looks its age (it has dulled a bit with age, and there are some age spots).
