481-OGE-CH Polished Brass Eight Light Vase Center Chandelier by Oxley Giddings
481-OGE-DK Antique Brass Finish Eight Light Vase Center Chandelier by Oxley Giddings
This difficult-to-make light dates from an 1890 original Oxley Giddings, the deluxe manufacturer. The arms coming from the top of the light have decorative armbacks applied to each curve.
A very unusual and attractive fixture illustrating the grace and inventiveness of the period. It is a "transitional" light, having both gaslight arms and early electric fittings - now fully electrified, of course.
Fixture uses 4" fitter shades on the "up" gas lights, and 2.25" fitter shades on the "down" electric lights. Shades are sold separately. We picture 053G and 054G as a suggestion, and offer many matched sets from which to choose.
We have many deLIGHTful fixtures to go with this fine chandelier. For lower ceilings, check out 80-CCL-TL, for up to 300 watts of light. A wonderful newel post transitional light, see 299-FGE-NW. Did you know Victorians had wall-mounted reading lamps? Pictured here also is the single swivel light 505-MSW-ES. It's also available in a double-arm model.
Height: 46", shortest possible 28" with a spread of 28"
