ANT-555 Antique Art Deco Slip Shade 6 Shade Chandelier by Markel
This light (circa 1935) was part of Markel's "8800" series. This chandelier was Model 8836, which was top of the line for this 8800 series. Their 1930s catalog says it has a spread of 20".
Markel was one of the biggest companies working in the Great Depression, and had locations in America, Canada, and Australia. They made a lot of the slip shade fixtures found in antique shops today, and were a quality company.
The frame has a Red Bronze finish. The finish...while being cleaned up a mite...is original, and simply beautiful to the max. You cannot find a much better antique red bronze finish slip shade chandelier than this one. Wonderful condition!
The shades are simply a treat and in remarkable condition. Probably made by Consolidated Glass, or another quality glass house.
Height: 31", which can be lengthened if a longer height is desired. Please contact us for pricing.
We re-wired this chandelier in our UL shop, and it was simply neat to work with a nice chandelier like this one.
Price: $1,250.00 plus shipping.
