Nice original 1930`s French Art Deco chandelier complete with original shades and nickel finished metal frame. Very nice condition with a significant lighting ability. We would call this Streamline Art Deco.
This fixture demonstrates an interesting design concept. This is where the center shade is mounted to each of the four arms, treating them like the fitter for this main centered shade. Works and is more unusual than most.
Electrical: The fixture has been totally re-wired in our UL shop. Each of the four outside shades has a candelabrum type socket for candelabrum bulbs. The center large shade has a three light cluster that accepts normal medium based bulbs. If you used normal maximum bulbs in each chandelier socket, you could have a total of 540 watts of lighting. This assumes a 60 watt bulb in each candelabrum socket and 3 bulbs of 100 watts in the center shade. Many folks would use less wattage.
This fine chandelier has been modified in three ways from the French original. Its sockets were changed from European to American. It was re-wired with UL approved wiring. It now mounts with American style mounting hardware to an American electrical box.
All in all, a very nice French Streamline Deco chandelier ready to hang.
