ANT-557 Art Deco 6 Shade Top-of-the-Line Clam Shell Chandelier by Mid-West
Art Deco Mid-West Streamline design six shade chandelier with great Clam Shell shades from the 1930s.
Mid-West was an outstanding company that survived the Great Depression, which took many companies out of business. They had a standard that they never lowered, and the resulting work shows just that.
They were clever too. They used this clam shell shade for two totally different lines. The first line, which catered to the Victorian tastes, had curvilinear lines and motifs. The second line embraced the new Art Deco Streamline movement, of which the chandelier is...and was...TOP-OF-THE-LINE, and their best offering for their Streamline series.

This fine light has two mixed metal finishes of polished metal contrasting with a rich old gold finish, and is, as the pictures tell, in outstanding condition for its age.
The shades are simply fantastic. No damage at all, and they have extremely rich colors.
Height: 24" tall, but can be lengthened by adding a little extra chain. Please contact us for pricing.
Width: 18 ½"
It was totally re-wired in our UL shop, with new sockets and new lead wire. Each slip shade socket can easily take a 100 watt bulb.
We are also supplying the bracket (crossbar) for this light, so literally, you can hang this light and have it working minutes after receiving it.
Really a nice light.
Price: $1,250.00 plus careful packing and shipping charges.
