French Art Deco or Mid Century Modern Chandelier (ANT-1010)

ANT-1010  French Art Deco or Mid Century Modern Chandelier

Very striking matt brush finished metal contrasting with a black acrylic construction.  This fixture is probably 50s or 60s.......but wow......what an impact it does have.  And the quality......well...it’s simply great.

The Shades are really works of art. HEAVY...thick....about 3/8 to 1/2 thick in places. And...they are not really mounted in the traditional way. They simply go over the socket and then sit on the Black acrylic bobeche. You can turn them anyway you wish to present them for your liking...sort of reminiscent of the way oil lamp shades were dropped into fitters. But the key here is:  Quality. Those shades are totally remarkable works of art in thickness and heavy quality design.

All these elements: ...the matt metal finish...the coal black acrylic...the heavy glass...are in total symphony for a quality 3 light French chandelier.

A small concern with these gorgeous French chandeliers, is the height of their shades. They are shorter than American shades so the bulbs often show above their rim. We modified that by installing a chandelier E-12 socket within the original French/British socket so American bulbs can be used while still maintaining the correct mounting of the shades.

E-12 chandelier sockets were installed by removing the old European “guts” of the socket while maintaining the outside housing. Then the Chandelier socket was installed directly INSIDE the original housing. We will supply a neat LED bulb with this fixture which we think works nicely, but, you can change it out, if so desired, with a bulb of your choice since now, the sockets are American.

All work was accomplished in our UL shop and is now totally up to American UL standards using American bulbs and power. It even installs with a re-worked UL approved standard crossbar which will be supplied.

Measurements:  Diameter:  15”.  Height:  24”.

Price:  $1,750  This includes a standard US mounting kit and all LED bulbs. A shipping charge must be added for crates and carriage.
