An early religious home decor and collectible - art deco 1920s or earlier 5 panel church or cathedral ceiling chandelier. Beautiful copper tone cross details on all the panels and lots of open metal work to allow light through and create a great effect. The opaque panels are actually plastic which helps offset the weight, which is substantial. Looks like bronze and has the weight of it as well. Would create magic in any room of your house, from entryway, hallway, dining room, living room or bedroom. I personally love great lighting in the kitchen, the heart of the home. This is a very large and heavy lamp which means it will need professional packing. There is also a wall sconce that I will be listing. Can pick up in Ontario or if you have a freight company you deal with they can pack and ship. More GREAT Lamps / Lighting
CONDITION: Excellent vintage and it retains its original finish without any changes. Also has the original ceiling cap. Unfortunately I have no way of hooking it up but the last time I did have it up, it worked just fine.
SIZE: Measures at least 19 inches high and approximately 14 inches across and 7 inches deep. Can be shortened via the chain. In a box right now so sizes are approximate, may be bigger but won't be smaller.
LIGHTING SAFETY NOTE: Some lamps may have their original wiring and sockets, and likely connected to a knob and tube system. These pieces should NOT be connected to an electrical supply without a qualified inspection of all parts. Rewiring is the usual and highly recommended path.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
