Two Matching Distinctive Antique Pendant Lights with Opaline Glass Shades, Patented 1934
Pair of matching unusual antique light fixtures with their original conical opaline glass shades, patented by George Ainsworth in May, 1934. Each pendant light begins with a tilting chrome canopy, allowing it to be mounted on a sloped ceiling. It has a chrome pole with an elongated fitter to support its original cone-shaped opaline glass shade. The conical white shade tapers to a raised pattern of beads, papyrus leaves and concentric circles. As detailed in 1934 patent #1957192, the fixture was designed with its unique shade to "intercept all the light that normally would be distributed downward and redirect the major portion of it over the broadest possible ceiling area above the device." These fixtures are in excellent antique condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass, just the expected fleabites around the edges. They have been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. Each chandelier body measures approximately 19-1/2” wide, 15” tall, and 36” long overall. THE PRICE LISTED IS FOR EACH FIXTURE; THERE ARE TWO AVAILABLE. Coordinating light fixtures available under items #NC1340-RW and #NC1341-RW.
