ANT-72A Vintage Antique Lights Original Lincoln Fleurette Slip Shade Chandelier Amber Shades
As the curators of the ONLY American Art Deco Lighting Museum, We have been fortunate to have received a donation of an office building full of art deco lights for our museum funding.Please see our web site for the museum at www.thedecomuseum.com.While Vintage Hardware & Lighting does make the reproduction of this light in brass, these are the ORIGINALS cast with zinc and aluminum frames Circa1930s.Some restoration and re-wiring has been done to bring them all up to UL standards.All are supplied with either old or new mounting supplies.Shades are replacements.
This series was named Fleurette, made by Lincoln Mnfg, of Detroit, Mich.about 1935.In the series, there were four light types.They were: a five light chandelier (like this one); a six light chandelier with a glass bottom; a two light hall fixture and sconces. We were lucky to get 3 out of the four types and are offering them until they are sold out.All proceeds will go to museum expansion and maintenance.We go thru about 100 light bulbs a month plus keep all lighting lit 9 hrs a day... 7 days of the week.
ANT-72A is a restored aluminum 5 light antique chandelier by Lincoln.Aluminum and zinc were the foundry metals of choice for Lincoln for all of their Art Deco lights of the period.The lovely embossed amber shades lift out of this fixture with ease.
The overall height of the light is 27 inches but it could be reduced to 20 inches by removing links of stem chain and/or it could be lengthened to between the 27 inches it is now, to about 50 inches by adding more chain since we left additional stem wire in case you wished to do this. It has a diameter of about 17 inches.
five 100-watt incandescent standard bulbs, for a total maximum of 500 watts of light
