An unusual antique Art Deco slip shade chandelier, dating from the 1930’s. The slipper shades feature a painted shield and crown design. The chandelier begins with a canopy ornamented with shields, coming down in a chain to a large finial with a red and green polychrome crest in the middle, surrounded by volutes and leaf detail. Below, the cast iron chandelier body is ornamented with shields, volutes, and anthemia, matching the design on the shades. The chandelier finishes in a dangling polychrome finial with foliate detail. This light fixture is in very good antique condition with one hairline on one of the shades (pictured) which is on the back of the shade and very hard to see. The chandelier has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. This chandelier is 18 ¼” wide, 15” tall (body only), and 29-1/2” long overall.
