Silver & Gold 7-Light "Ambassador" Deco Chandelier, c1935 Item # R0652
"In Tune with the Modern Trend. Here is a design that harmonizes with the average home of today," states Sears about their Ambassador series in their 1936 Lightmaster catalog of residential lighting. This fixture, model 20 N 5856, would probably have been considered Empire by the style mavens of the day. While Sears generally contracted with independent lighting manufacturers for their distributed lines - some were sold by many different dealers - this line is noted as being "Sold exclusively by Sears."
"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.
