Art Deco Chandelier Antique Clamshell Slip Shade Odeon Theatre Light (ANT-812)

ANT-812  Art Deco British Odeon Movie Theatre Chandelier with 3 Clam Shell Slip Shades

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 movie theater, 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.

Measurements:

  • Height:  19" overall.
  • Diameter:  14 ½"

The shades came out in the pictures just a touch darker than they really are.  I would say accurate description of the shade color would be light amber...NOT as dark as the pictures appear.

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.

We have re-wired 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 you use 100 watt bulbs.  The chandelier is ready to hang with an American standard light mounting kit, which we will supply.

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