Art Deco Odeon Theatre Clamshell Chandelier - 1920s to 1930s Antique Theater Lighting (ANT-478)

ANT-478  Art Deco Odeon Theatre Amber Slip Shade Chandelier

A very neat shell motif British theatre chandelier.  This chandelier (and sconces that match it) are often called Odeon Lights, since the main movie house chain in Britain has named all their theatres Odeon.  In fact...Odeon is often a synonymous term for a movie theatre, i.e. "Let's go to the Odeon."   This chandelier was used with frosted, amber, and even pink tinted shades around the turn of the century.   In older British theaters, you can still see them existing where they have been for over half a century or more.

We have rewired this chandelier to UL American standards in our UL listed shop, with a new American center socket cluster for three bulbs.  One bulb lights each shade, so 300 watts can be achieved with this chandelier if 100 watt bulbs are used.

There is minor rubbing on the frame (pictured) due to its age, which should not affect the impression of the fixture, but we thought to mention it.

The chandelier is ready to hang with an American standard light mounting kit which we will supply.

Measurements:

  • Height:  22" tall, measured from the top of the canopy to the bottom of the finial.
  • Width:  14 ½"

Price:   $795.00 for the chandelier, complete with the amber shades shown, plus shipping charges.
