Markel 2915 JAT 1937 "Emphasizing the modern beauty of Shaded Light" stated Markel Electric Products about this Model 2915 in a 1937 catalog. A classic mid-Deco era 5-bulb shaded light, it features lovely amber-tinted Peach-Glo "chevron" slipper shades - a popular design that appears in several different Markel fixture series over the years. This chandelier mixes traditional and modern motifs for an adaptable character that works well in a wide range of settings.

"Shaded lights" were the hot trend from about 1930 through 1935, before Streamline style and cup-shade fixtures moved center stage. Inspired by French examples and featuring individual glass slip or slipper shades at each light bulb that were typically unique to specific body designs, these fixtures generally offer direct illumination of the ceiling above while casting a warm and intimate light on the area below - often a living room or a dining room table. These fixtures were usually designed in named families or series, with a range of different lengths, lights, colors and applications available.
