A very neat shell motif British theater chandelier from England. This chandelier, and sconces that match it, are often called "Odeon Lights" since one of the a main movie house chains in Britain, named all their theaters "Odeon". In fact..."Odeon" is sometimes a synonymous term for a movie theater. i.e "go to the Odeon".
This chandelier was used with frosted, amber and even pink tinted shades around the turn of the century. In older British theaters, you can still see them existing where they have been for over half a century or more.We have rewired this chandelier to UL American standards with a new American center socket cluster for three bulbs.
One bulb lights each shade so 300 watts can be achieved with this chandelier if you use 100 watt bulbs. With its standard socket, you can also use “spiral” CF bulbs, or our LED bulbs for great energy savings.The chandelier is ready to hang with an American standard light mounting kit which we will supply.
Measures: 18" tall to the bottom of the finial with a width of 14 1/2". Price: $ 650 for the chandelier complete with the amber shades shown, plus shipping charges. We have a matching pair of sconces , that came with this chandelier, for sale on another listing if you are thinking about a suite.
