Magnificent Antique Arts & Crafts Chandelier with Slag Glass, Early 1900’s NC885
This is a stunning antique Arts & Crafts five-light chandelier, dating from the early 1900’s. The chandelier begins with a hammered canopy coming down in a chain to a large ring, below which the chandelier body is supported by four chains. Each chain connects to a riveted handle on the chandelier body. Between the handles, four wrought iron chandelier arms support gorgeous lanterns, ornamented with trefoil straps and retaining their original honey-colored slag glass. The underside of the chandelier body is finished in an inverted dome of slag glass, with one light inside, allowing light to shine through the bottom of the chandelier body. This light fixture is in excellent condition; it has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The glass is also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks, just the expected fleabites around the rims. The chandelier body measures 25 ½” wide and 12 ½” tall to the top of the handles; the fixture is 36 ¾” long overall. Two matching figural chandeliers from the same house are also available, item # NC870-RW.
