VTG Art Deco Lighting Chandelier, 6 pc slip shade, 3 way switch, all original. Fabulous Antique 1930's Arts & Crafts Slip Shade Chandelier with 5 slip shades and a bowl shade on bottom. It has a 3 way switch so 5 shades can light, or bottom bowl shade can light only or all 6 bulbs can be lit. With all six lights on, this chandelier illuminates the full room very well. I cant find any markings for maker, but it is similar to what Moe Bridge Co.It is a silver grey tone metal alloy, more matte finish metal typical of the Art Deco time period. With lights lit, the pictures do have a brassy tone to the metal, but it is silver-grey.
Lots of extraordinary detail, bends and curves in the chandelier structure, and somewhat of a cactus flower 5 petal carving between each shade and more on the interior body of the fixture. It has a decorative upper finial and bottom finial charm that hangs and moves beneath the bowl shade about 5 long. The fountain design of the period is depicted. The shades include five glass slip shades that slot in the metal around the socket and bulb area. They are amber orange in color and their best color is when lit.
Beautifully Art Deco designed with scallops on upper edge and beaded bottoms. They are matte glass but shiny on the inside surfaces. All shades are in great shape for the age of the fixture with 2 having small nicks as shown in pictures.
The bottom bowls hade is scalloped and has one fisheye nick in one scallop area. One small fisheye nick on one shade near a scallop. This light has not been completely rewired.
Only the top chain cord has been replaced. It works fully, just tested in each switch position. There is no canopy as this was mounted from its eye screw through a lovely hand painted ceiling medallion. 32 in long from eye bolt of chain to the bottom finial.
24 from top finial to bottom finial 19 wide from Shade to Shade 7 long chain, so it could be reduced a few inches if needed, but the chain links are terribly strong. It takes 6 standard light bulbs or chandelier bulbs, up to 40 watts each.
These are not included, but ceiling hanging hardware will be included. I have packed the slip shades and bowl shade off the fixture and separated to avoid breakage. Items are vintage/antique and used and may show signs of wear consistent with age, which only add to their charm and character.I have photographed and described the item to the best of my ability.
