Antique 1930s Art Deco Pendant Ceiling Light Chandelier by Lightolier (ANT-772)

ANT-772  1933 Lightolier Luxart Chandelier

This chandelier was shown in a 1933 Lightolier catalog for builders, architects, and decorators. The catalog shows this chandelier being installed in the finest shopping establishments.  It came from the series that Lightolier called Luxart.  Our chandelier was stock numbered 4022, and the cost in 1933 was $29.25.  This was a princely sum in Depression 1933.  Since it was never a cheapy...and since most of its use was commercial...few have survived, since few were bought for the home.

Lightolier made two versions of this chandelier.  They made this one with four side shades, and a slightly larger model with five side shades.  Strangely, both models only had one socket.

This frame is, and was, made from a combo of metals.  You have a structural cast iron frame with nickel plated elements.  Iron painted black to contrast the Nickel.

This chandelier does show its age.  There are odd living marks on the nickel struts...there is some worn iron paint...and like a good Persian carpet...it just shows its age.  If you are a true antiquer...its great...if you need it perfect...please don't consider it.

Measurements:

  • Height:  33"
  • Width:  10 ½"

It contains one medium base socket just like the original.  This could be modified if desired.  But Lightolier suggested the use of a 300 watt bulb.  There are some very beefy LEDs out there that could light it up very nicely indeed.

While everyone in the biz throws the word "rare" at nearly everything...we refuse to do that. However...to explain that this is a more uncommon finding is not stretching the truth at all.

Price:  $1,750.00 complete with very fine condition side shades, while the bottom shade does have some roughness around the mounting area which is not ever seen.  Plus normal packing and shipping.
