ANT-488 Pair of Gothic Lion Head Chandeliers
Pair of wrought iron chandeliers from turn-of-the-century...Circa 1920 or so. Hard to date accurately, but the quality and the original cloth wiring helped us. Heavy and well made!
We have restored the sockets and wiring completely in our UL shop, and they are ready to hang.
The glass shades are all unique. This is because they are hand-blown and free-blown, which means in air...but not into a die. So every single shade is hand done and a bit different. All the glass is in near-mint condition, and each has a beautiful crackle glass surface. They add a rustic and unique accent to these fixtures.
The cast lion face masks between each shade are rather striking, and do pose a certain attitude. All rather Medieval Gothic. I like how the area below the shade is bulbous, which imitates an oil lamp reservoir, but of course only functions as a design characteristic now.
Height: 28", but can be adjusted by adding chain links, or an additional rod suspension for a slight additional cost.
All mounting hardware will be supplied.
Price for the complete pair of Gothic chandeliers with shades: $2,800.00 plus shipping.
