Splendid Antique Art Deco Three Light Chandelier, c. 1930 NC267 - For Sale
Splendid Antique Art Deco Three Light Chandelier, c. 1930 NC267
This enchanting Art Deco chandelier displays its original nickel and bronze plated finish. This chandelier meets the chain at a large loop style top finial, which is connected to a thick center rod that is adorned with tri-ribbing along either side. The center rod meets an irregularly shaped globe, ribbed at the base, from which three slightly bent rods make arms. The globe’s underside supports a marvelously futuristic style finial. Orbiting the chandelier at the end of each arm, one will find a stylized cone-shaped bobeche within which sets superb custard glass “pudding bowl” shades. The shades are marked Czechoslovakia (see finial image). This adorable three light chandelier is one of those quintessential Art Deco pieces that give one a nostalgia for the “future” as it was dreamed back then. This chandelier is in excellent condition, and displays only minimal “flea bites” to the glass. These are not noticeable when the shades are in place, and do not affect the attractiveness of this piece at all. It has been professionally rewired, and it comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The overall diameter is 15”; the length of the chandelier only is 12 ½”; the overall length is 23”.
