Original Lincoln 5 Light Chandelier (ANT-106) - For Sale
Original Lincoln 5 Light Chandelier (ANT-106)
Outstanding original five light chandelier, circa 1935, made by Lincoln Lighting Products of Detroit, Michigan.
Art Deco Lighting enthusiasts will recognize the shades as the same ones used on Lincoln's Fleur-de-Lis series, but this is a much scarcer light fixture than the Fleur de Lis and yes, these are the correct shades for it. As curators of the only American Art Deco Lighting Museum we are familiar with this lovely light. Note the design of the shade matching the design on the bowl. Perfect match. These were always designed to go together and what a striking appeal it has too.
This chandelier has been rewired although it still has the ambiance of a 1930s light. Five new high end sockets, with wiring, were installed and we also left an extra 2 feet of extra central lead wire in case the purchaser wishes to extend the length of the light with more chain than supplied. We could help you with that if so desired.
The finish of the self-colored aluminum frame is very nice. It has a lovely pewter contrast as hopefully the pictures show.
The details of the shades are outstanding. These shades were supplied both as a clear frosted and orange/amber. Orange/amber is normally preferred and was more expensive. This fixture's shades are in very good condition with some VERY minor flaking around the fitters which is extremely hard to see unless you were right up to the light and looking very hard for them.
Measurements: This fixture now measures 26 inches tall from the ceiling to the bottom of the finial. It has a diameter of 18 1/2 inches, shade tip to shade tip. A full mounting kit will be provided so there will be nothing else to buy...or do...before mounting this beauty.
