Pierced Center 10 Light Gas & Elec Chandelier (466-FGE-CH)

466-FGE-CH  Polished Unlacquered Brass Antique Reproduction Victorian Style Chandelier

Mitchell, Vance is most commonly known for their surviving Circa 1876 catalog of "Neo-Grecian" lighting, which has been reprinted by Dover Publications.  About 15 years after this original catalog had been printed, the company was still making outstanding quality lighting.

Among those lights were a handful of long pierced bodied chandeliers that required great skill to make.  These fixtures became some of the best quality and highest priced fixtures available on the late Victorian market.  The recreation of these long pierced body sections was a trade secret in 1890, and has again become one today.  It took us over a year and dozens of failed molds to rediscover the secret of their production.  The effort was truly worth it.

This is a 5 arm, 10 light fixture.  The ability for the Victorians to put both gas and electric lights on a single arm was a difficult thing to do.  It required the tube to be divided perfectly with an internal soldered baffle without a single leak.  Even with our technology today, it can still be a daunting task.

The only reproduced "crown and spoke" 4" diameter gas fitter was recreated for this light.

Measurements:

  • Height:  42" tall.
    • Can be shortened to as little as 26" upon request.
    • If you need a longer length, our chandelier extension kit adds up to an extra 65".
  • Spread:  26" with the shades shown.
  • Wattage:  All sockets are common medium base size (E26), and rated up to 100 watts incandescent each.

Price does not include the shades, though the shades shown are 068G and 067G.  Different patterns of shades can be purchased separately here.  Gas shade fitters are 4" in diameter, and the electric shade fitters measure 2 ¼" in diameter.
