Fine antique NYC Art deco gold gilt 3 tier wedding cake Austrian crystal chandelier! Please read the entire description, view all pictures close up and ask questions.
Pictures are part of the description. Items I sell are used and old and as such may show signs of wear and age. This beautiful gold gilt antique art deco 3 tier wedding cake crystal chandelier once hung in an old art deco era hotel building in New York City. The chandelier measures approximately 10 inches wide and 12 inches in length from the bottom of the crystals to the top loop of the fixture, not including the chain length. The top tier is gold gilded.The chandelier has been decorated with 130 clear 2.5 Austrian crystals. The crystals have had new brass bow tie connector pins added on. The top of the socket cluster features a pierced art deco plateau and fancy gold loop.
The plateau and loop are removable -Removing the plateau and loop from the top would allow you to mount the fixture flush to the ceiling. The bottom inside of the fixture has a gold gilt sunburst finial with two blue sapphire glass jewels.
The chandelier has been rewired. It has two bakelite standard sized keyless sockets encased in gold metal acanthus leaves.
I used short halogen 100 watt decorator bulbs. This fixture is meant to be hung by the chain from the ceiling and will operate with a wall switch or dimmer switch. When re-attaching the crystals to the frame, I recommend starting from the bottom tier and working up. I spaced the crystals evenly by eye.
There are no missing crystals. Please refer to the photos close up to see how they are spaced on the frame.The ceiling canopy is embossed brass and measures 4 1/2 inches wide. The canopy comes with a fancy 14 inch embossed brass adjustable chain.
The pictures don't do it justice! Sometimes the flash of the camera may make picture colors appear slightly different. Old crystals may have slight imperfections.
