123-SOL-5L  Art Deco Slip Shade Soleure 5 Light Hanging Chandelier

After two years of working on this project, we now offer one of the finest Art Deco recreations on the market today.  Originally made by MidWest Manufacturing of Kansas City, Kansas in 1935, this company had a remarkable attitude towards the Great Depression.  Their attitude was to make only the best, since there are always folks with money out there, even in the worst of times.

So...for this “Soleure Series“, we adopted a likewise philosophy.  Make it from the best material (silicon bronze); by the best method (lost wax casting, just like jewelry is made); with the best glass shade cast from an original; and finish it in a fine red bronze finish with highlights of the original metal...since there still are discriminating tastes out there in these times, too.

Since we are curators of the only American Art Deco Lighting Museum ( see ), we can assure you that the original manufacturer and original manufacturing date of this fixture has been verified by our literature library as being from MidWest Manufacturing, and of this time period.

Measurements:  This fixture hangs approximately 29 1/2” to the bottom of the finial, and has a 19" spread across the points of the glass shades.  The canopy is 7” in diameter.  If you need additional chain, we can supply it for a small charge.

The five sockets can handle up to 100 watt incandescent bulb each, or purchase our optional LED Art Deco looking bulb 60-WW-E26, each using only 7 watts and putting out about 75 watts of incandescent equivalent light.  Makes running the close ceiling chandelier all night long, perhaps as a nite lite, very economical indeed and cool to the shades as well.

Look for our matching Soleure wall sconce light (pictured here also), and 5-Shade Close Ceiling Chandelier.  If you already own an antique Soleure light, you can purchase replacement slip shades.

Our shopping cart uses a default freight amount, and you are invoiced for actual shipping charges.
