Edgar Brandt (1880 to 1960) was a genius metalsmith of the Art Deco age.  In fact, he was the main metalsmith for the Art Decoratifs Expo in Paris 1925, which is popularly believed to have given Art Deco its name.

Following the Art Deco movement, we have designed this fantastic solid bronze/brass chandelier that is simply outstanding for Art Deco aficionados who appreciate the early hand-worked metalsmiths.  It gives an indirect decorative ambiance lighting that is simply lovely.  The metal panels are Lost wax cast, and they reflect the Art Deco metalsmiths of the age.

This chandelier has options for lighting types, and it also has options for glass and mica types.  A good variation, which will yield different lighting results.

Electricity:  We built the original chandelier with Six Mogul (E39) sockets, assuming that bigger bulbs would be used since most of this type of chandelier is indirect lighting.  All of the following options will be wired to UL specifications, and will be UL labeled.

Options for Lighting Types:

  1. Induction bulbs of 40 watts each (quantity 6)
    • Each bulb equal to 200 watts incandescent -- bulbs can be supplied.
  2. Normal incandescent mogul sockets
    • Rated up to 300 watts each socket -- bulbs not supplied.
  3. LED bulbs from 30 watts to 60 watts (bulbs not supplied).
  4. We could alternatively install different sockets for other types of light bulbs such as: Normal E-26 medium base sockets, or simply supply a reducer to give choices between using Mogul bulbs or Medium based bulbs.

California Title 24 Notes:  Other available socket options are GU10...or 2G11...or G23 perhaps? (Especially to comply with Title 24 in California).  Being makers, and not simply re-sellers, we comply with many options.

Options for Glass Types:

  1. Amber Mica (as shown)...warm and mellow lighting for ambiance.
  2. White Mica...which would provide a more bright light.
  3. Frosted Glass...which would provide most light penetration for a stronger down lighting.

Measurements:

Height:  Can be varied two ways.  First, the body height can be changed, and second, the fluted supply tube can be shortened as well.  When made, the body height is 53" and the tube length is 36", making an overall height of 89".  This can be changed radically.  We can shorten the pipe to a mere 6", and shorten the body to as little as 36", creating an overall height as little as 42" (or anywhere in between 89" and 42") for a good appearance.  Naturally, we can also lengthen the chandelier to nearly any length for a long drop by adding sections of fluted tube.

Diameter:  43" is the maximum diameter.

Canopy:  The unusual canopy measures 9 ½" diameter by 4 ¾" tall.
