This is a very unusual antique industrial light fixture, patent dated March 3, 1903, retaining its original, beautifully aged japanned finish and milk glass shade. This five-light fixture begins with a copper flashed canopy. It comes down in a pole and flares out in a stepped pattern to support its original dish-shaped milk glass shade. Below the shade is a japanned hemisphere that holds five bulbs, each angled in a different direction, supported by small white scalloped bobeches. This light fixture is in very good antique condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass. There is a hairline and a tiny fleabite in the porcelain ring immediately below the shade (pictured), but it is hardly noticeable and does not detract from the beauty of this unique light fixture. The light fixture has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures 18” wide and approx. 7” tall, and the fixture is approx. 42” long overall.
