ANT-600 Antique Lincoln Mfg Quality Slip Shade Chandelier Circa 1935
This 5 shade chandelier was made by Lincoln Manufacturing, who were ONE of the largest makers of slip shade lighting in America, and who even sold to Sears. We know Lincoln design and castings quite well, having handled hundreds of their various products.
This particular chandelier is unique because of the design of the shades. It came from the series called Dynalite. It has attributes that are DIFFERENT from Virden, or Markel, or Acme, or Frankelite, or Halcolite, or Globe. The positioning of the shade, being upside down, was a favorite variation of Lincoln's that was hardly ever used by any other manufacturer.
The fixture is aluminum...Lincoln Mnf was an aluminum foundry, rather than cast iron or cast zinc.
The shades are just so fantastic. Amber glass with floral reliefs.
The frame is "old gold" colored, and original. Like most antiques, this chandelier is showing its age a bit. Some of the finish is worn in places, and muted like an like an old Persian carpet.
