ANT-561 Antique Art Deco Slip Shade Chandelier Circa 1936 - 1938
Authentic Art Deco, slip shade, mixed metals, 5 light chandelier circa 1936-38.
The finish, while being cleaned up a mite, is original and pleasant. Wonderful condition.
The shades are simply a treat, and in remarkable condition. This is the larger slip shade made during the later part part of the Art Deco slip shade era. Its purpose was to allow bigger bulbs and more light spread from those made just a couple of years before, which had size limitations.
All the Art Deco makers got into this scoop shade profile. They varied the design of the bowl a bit, so telling them apart is not very easy, since at first glance they all look so similar. This version has a nice, clean edge, with a ribbed bottom section. But it is interesting to note how the center rib of the shade matches the ribbed column and ceiling canopy. This is more a Streamline fixture due to these simplistic elements.
Height: 23" overall.
Diameter: 18 ½"
This fixture can be lengthened by adding chain links. Please contact us for pricing.
The chandelier has been totally rewired in our UL shop with high grade sockets and new central lead wire.
Capable of up to 100 watts per socket, for a total of 500 watts. The picture was taken with 11 watt bulbs to not blow out the focus, and allow the frame details to show through.
Save electricity with our new 100 watt equivalent LED light bulbs. They only use 9 watts of electricity, and are an attractive substitute for incandescent or curly compact fluorescent light bulbs. With less heat output than incandescent bulbs, they are a gentler alternative to use with antique glass shades, too!
Price for the completely rewired UL antique chandelier with amber slip shades: $750.00 plus careful shipping.
