ANT-649  Art Deco 5 Shade Clam Shell Chandelier by Mid-West

Art Deco Mid-West Streamline design five-light chandelier, with great clam shell slip shades.  From the 1930s.

Mid-West was an outstanding company that survived the Great Depression that took many companies out.  They had a standard that they never lowered, and the resulting work shows just that.

They were clever, too.  They used this clam shell shade for two totally different lines.  The first line catered to the Victorian tastes, with curvilinear lines and motifs.  The second line embraced the new Art Deco Streamline movement of which, this chandelier is a prime example of their Streamline series. (Information and educational image courtesy of the Kelly Art Deco Light Museum.)

This fine light has mixed metal finishes of polished metal contrasting with a rich old gold finish.

The shades are simply fantastic.  No damage at all, and have extremely rich colors.


  • Height:  23"
    • Overall height can be lengthened by adding a little extra chain.  Please contact us for pricing.
  • Diameter:  18 ½" overall.

This chandelier has been totally rewired in our UL shop, with new sockets and new lead wire. Each slip shade socket can easily accept a 100 watt bulb.

We will also supply the bracket (crossbar) for this light, so literally, you can hang this light and have it working minutes after receiving it.  Really a nice light.

Price:  $895.00 plus careful packing and shipping charges.
