This is an amazing antique brass two-light gas Arts and Crafts chandelier, now wired for electricity. Dating back to the 1890’s, this fixture retains its original, beautifully aged patina. The chandelier begins with a wonderful hexagonal canopy with a beaded top edge. It comes down in a six-sided pole to a hexagonal brass body, beginning with a bowl-like piece, below which is a beveled section that angles out, then back in to a thick pole. A pair of squared arms extends straight out on either side of the body, each ending in a circular shade holder with a slightly flared cube-like shade. The arms splits just before the shade holders, curving down around the shade, finishing with a loop gas key and an understated bobeche. Below the arms, the chandelier body repeats the flared design of its upper portion, ending in an elongated finial with a ball tip. This chandelier would be a splendid addition to any Craftsman Bungalow or a Prairie home. The light fixture is in excellent condition, and 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. It measures 23 ¼” wide, 5 ¼” deep, has a body 13 ½” tall, and is 36 ½” long overall.
