This is a splendid antique brass four-light chandelier, originally half gas and half electric, and now completely wired for electricity. Dating from the late 19th Century, the chandelier begins with a square canopy, and comes down in a squared rod to a four-side brass bowl. Below, the two chandelier arms extend straight out to either side, with a square bobeche on top of each arm and a shade holder below. Each shade holder supports a wonderful, four-sided amber shade. This light fixture is in excellent condition. The shades are also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks, just the expected fleabites around the rims. The chandelier has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures 15 5/8” wide, 4” deep, and 12” tall to the tops of the candle covers; the fixture is 39 ¾” long overall.
