ANT-302 Mid-Century Modern French 1950s Chandelier
Here is a great ceiling light for a special place.
French, and made from aluminum, it has four down lights having heavy cast glass shades. These shades are simply neat. Very thick, and very heavy, they epitomize the 50’s with the star rays and squat ball shape. They are “threaded” into the fitter rather than using set screws. Very neat!
Downside is the size of light bulb it can take. Being a converted French fixture to American sockets, it can only take a smaller 25 watt or so light bulb. We recommend using our 45G-E26B LED bulbs, since each gives out about that amount of light, but without much heat, and uses only 1.6 watts! The ambiance of these bulbs is warm, and they draw so little electricity (1.6 watts) that we have known folks who leave them on 24/7. The bulbs do have an expected life of 25 - 30,000 hours.
The metal could use a polishing or fine steel wool depending on the finish. It does show its age a bit, but we tend not to interfere with the aging process since it is a collectible after all.
Height: 9" overall, including the shades.
This chandelier has been completely re-wired in our UL shop with new sockets and all new wire.
Price: $650.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
