Art Deco Slip Shade Chandelier 1930s Polychrome 5 Light by Frankelite (ANT-718)

ANT-718  Antique Art Deco Slip Shade Fenwick Chandelier Circa 1933

Authentic Art Deco, slip shade, polychrome painted, 5 shade chandelier.  Circa 1933.

The finish, while being cleaned up a mite, is original and simply beautiful to the max.  Hard to find a much nicer antique slip shade chandelier than this one.  Wonderful condition.

The shades are simply a treat, and in remarkable condition.  Probably made by Consolidated Glass, or another quality glass house.

Since we are curators of the only American Art Deco Museum, we can tell you a bit about this light. It was made by a firm in Cleveland, Ohio called:  The Frankelite Co.  The logo was a stylized "F" in a diamond device.  They issued their products under the trade name of Diamond Lighting Equipment.  This light, circa 1933, was part of their "Fenwick Series".   This chandelier was Model 1255.  The catalog says it has a spread of 21" (they actually rounded that figure up from 20 ½"). Frankelite was a rather small firm that very little is known about.  We have a few examples of their work, and they are always rather unique and attractive stand-alone lights.  The name and date of these fixtures has been verified by literature from the company as 1933.

Measurements:

  • Height:  31"
    • This fixture can be lengthened by adding chain links.  Please contact us for pricing.
  • Diameter:  ~21"

The chandelier has been totally rewired with high grade sockets, and new central lead wire in our UL shop.  Capable of up to 100 watts per socket, for a total of 500 watts.

Price:  Completely re-wired UL antique Fenwick chandelier by Frankelite:  $1,250.00 plus careful shipping.
