Original Polychrome Finished Cast Iron Slip Shade Art Deco Chandelier (ANT-119) - For Sale
Original Polychrome Finished Cast Iron Slip Shade Art Deco Chandelier (ANT-119)
Cast iron, painted polychrome five light chandelier made by Globe in the 1930s. Globe is a unique company and not as common as Lincoln or Markel but they did some very exciting things.
Their brand name was Electrolier and while some folks assume that there was a company named Electrolier, it was simply a brand that Globe marketed and impressed into many of their castings.
While the polychrome painting is pretty darn nice...there is a bit of an extra bonus in painting. When someone painted the ceiling, where this chandelier was living, they sort of missed a bit and added some paint to the ceiling canopy. I am sure with a bit of patience, most... if not all...of it will come off, but we like to supply antiques as found and will let the new owner decide removal methods.
This chandelier is a five light which has been rewired with five new sockets and lead wire. Each socket can handle a 100 watt bulb, so 500 watts is quite possible with this light.
The shades are in wonderful condition without any chips or cracks. NONE.
Measurements: 15 inches from the top of the ceiling canopy to the bottom of the ceiling bowl. It has a diameter from shade tip to shade tip of 17 inches. For the proper decorative scheme, this would be an outstanding example of an Art Deco chandelier. Note the frame is beautifully cast of iron with nice detail and clarity of casting.
85% of the finish is just about mint. Rewired with new porcelain sockets and central lead wire and comes with a complete mounting kit...so.... this chandelier is ready to hang and begin life in a different art deco or bungalow atmosphere.
Great for a lower ceiling with an overall height of only 15".
Price: $750.00 plus shipping.
