Lovely circa 1936 Streamline chandelier. Original antique chandelier, with original antique shades.
Note how the shade fitters sweep up and hold the tapered shades so nicely. The rim of the fitter has been nicely reticulated, with design, to make the shade seem to mold right into the fixture. A very nice touch indeed.
The frame is a contrast between black and nickel plating, as shown in the pictures. The frame is showing its age, like a good Persian carpet, but in no way can it be considered in bad condition. It simply is mellowed out after all these years. Nickel plating is more mellow than hard chrome, and gives a more aged ambiance to the fixture.
The shades are custard glass with a simple pattern, and match the round areas of the frame quite well. They are in excellent condition.
This chandelier has been completely re-wired, with new sockets and all new wire, in our UL shop.
Measurements: The overall height is 22”. The overall diameter is 20 1/2”, measured from the outside edge of one shade, to the outside edge of the shade opposite.
