Streamline Deco Antique Chandelier Slip Shade Ceiling Light Mid West (ANT-863)

ANT-863  Art Deco Streamline 6-Shade Chandelier by Mid West Mnf

Very nice 6 shade, slip shade, Art Deco chandelier by Mid West Mnf.  The Streamline Deco decorative elements of this 6-shade chandelier are really quite nice.  It has five slip shades with one socket each, and a bottom shade that contains two sockets.

The metal frame has the original antique finish...in pretty nice condition.  There are crackle surface finishes in old gold surrounded by elements of matte pewter metal, complete with a tapered Deco center motif.

This fixture came from the same home as ANT-844.  It differs in two ways.  First, instead of being finished in RED Old Gold...it is finished in OLD Yellow Gold finish.  Secondly, this is a low ceiling version, which has a simple stem instead of the fancy long drop stem.

Mid-West really did know how to design iconic fixtures, and this one has a taste of Streamline step-deco with all the restrained features of the Streamline design. Circa 1934 - 1937, Mid West called this series the Empire Series.  This chandelier differs just slightly from the catalog with a great Step Deco bottom shade that has two sockets within it for extra down lighting.

The Empire family consisted of a 6 shade chandelier (top of the line); a three light chandelier; a two light pendant, and a wall sconce.

We have rewired this 6-shade, 7 light bulb chandelier to UL standards in our UL shop.  It has new sockets and lead wire, and is all set to go.  So, it's ready to hang with a standard light mounting kit, which we will also supply.

Measurements:

  • Height:  17"
  • Diameter:  17"

This chandelier has 7 medium base light bulb sockets, including the two in the bottom bowl.

Price:  $1,150.00 for this great chandelier, complete with its NEAR-MINT condition frosted shades, plus shipping.
