ANT-931  Art Deco Streamline 5 Light Chandelier Attributed to Mid-West Mnf

Fine Streamline Art Deco five shade chandelier ...Circa 1937-39 made by Mid-West Mnf of “North” Kansas City, MO.  We state this since Mid-West was the only maker who mixed solid brass and nickel components and made such excellent quality...of which...this chandelier truly is !

This is both an attractive chandelier and an interesting historical development of the Mid-West Chandelier company.  As we emerged from the deco slip-shade era...manufacturers were scrambling for designs and yet...weary of the cost factors of the depression,  they tried to use some designs already established.  The stem and canopy of this nice chandelier was taken from their slip shade chandelier series and are known components.

And...maintaining Mid-West re-known quality,  this fixture is BRONZE and nickel plated metals mixed together for a great quality presentation.

Bronze with nickel highlights finish was striking during the 30s just as it is today.  It is definitely a contrast that was part of the Art Deco streamline statement in lighting.

The shades too are worth mentioning since the quality of these is simply nice.  Nice striated sides with clear glass top rims with an amber color is just so nice.   Some roughness around the fitters which is so typical after 80 odd years of use...but the presentation just says quality.

This chandelier has been totally re-wired with new sockets and wires, in our UL shop, and is ready to go.  We will even supply a mounting kit so you can have it hung-up in no time.

Nice original finish and shades.   Places of the finish are a mite thin in place...like an old Persian carpet, with the minor metal is showing some of it’s 80 or so years, but this finish is considered “good” for this age of fixture.

We could have gone nuts polishing the nickel...but...some folks like the mellow-ness of antiques ...so..we left it alone with it’s age.

Measurements: 19” tall  (could be lengthened by adding more chain) and it has a diameter of 18 1/2”.

Price:  $ 695.00  complete ... plus careful packaging and shipping
