This luxurious silver plated semi-flush chandelier is from the very early 1900s. The body of this selection begins with a grand canopy, which is banded around the upper rim with leafy gadrooning giving the edge a scalloped appearance. The canopy, as well as the majority of this piece, displays a unique swirling brushed texture, which allows for magnificent bouncing of light off of the silver plate. Following the canopy, one finds a large disc accounting for the mass of this chandelier. The underside of the disc comes to a point at a foliate style bottom finial and features a correspondingly cast foliate border around where the chandelier’s arms attach. Each of the chandelier’s five ribbed arms meets the body in the form of a cast acanthus leaf; thus, descending into an S-curve, which then ascends to meet the rim of the disc at a pebble style button. The arms support flawless, rewired, and original Hubble sockets, which house the true gems of this semi-flush chandelier in the form of the original, signed (see images) Quoizel art glass shades. Each shade flaunts a dazzling iridescent finish and is in excellent condition. One shade has minor “flea bite” around the fitter rim, but is not visible when in place. This light fixture would make a brilliant addition to any home. It is in excellent condition, has been professionally rewired, and it comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. This chandelier is 19” at it’s widest; the total length is 16”.
