Art Deco 5 Shade Wide-Slip-Shade Chandelier by Markel (ANT-954)

ANT-954  Art Deco 5 Shade Wide-Slip-Shade Chandelier by Markel

Antique Art Deco Slip Shade 5 shade Chandelier by Markel. This light, Circa 1936 (by catalog dating), was part of their "2300 line". This chandelier was Model 2315 which was best of the five lights for this 2300 series. Their 1936 catalog says it has a spread of 19 1/2“. In the 2300 line, there were only five individuals....A sconce; a two shade light; a three shade light and two models of this five shade light.

This model has a slightly different canopy and finial. Customization even then.

Wide shades came a bit later in the Deco era. Their purpose was to spread a more even light as light bulbs were getting more powerful. They wanted to reduce the “hot spot” generated by narrow slip shades.

Markel was one of the biggest companies working in the Great Depression and had locations in America and Canada and Austrailia. They made a lot of the antique slip shade fixtures that can be found in antique shops today. They were a quality company.

Cast iron frame with the Original OLD GOLD finish. The finish, while being cleaned up “a mite“, is original and nice and mellow. It does show it’s age with the odd wear mark here and there, but, It is antique after all.

The shades are simply a treat and in good condition. We have re-wired this neat chandelier in our UL shop.

Measurements: 24” in height and as mentioned 19 1/2” diameter. It will be supplied with a full mounting kit so just add the bulbs of your choice.

This fixture can be lengthened by adding chain links.

Price:  $ 950.00 plus normal shipping charges.
