Markel 3000 Line 5-Light Slip Shade Chandelier, c1933 Item # R1801
Produced by Markel Electric Products, the model 3015 is a Late-Deco slipper-shade fixture that is both clean in its silhouette and subtle in its motifs. An artful combination of gently abstracted leaves and repeating geometric lines combine in a forward-looking fixture that hangs right in the early 1930s balance between Art Deco and Streamline.
Here's what Markel had to say about the 3000 Line: "Gracefully sweeping glassware to provide glowing, shaded light, now being demanded for better seeing, provides the dominating note of beauty in these fixtures. These fixtures are especially desirable for modernizing and refixturing." Original Silver Grey and Gold finish, cast Ferro Metal, with Peach-Glo glass.
"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.
- Notes: There are some minor chip on the interior of two of the shades. Neither is visible when hung, nor do they affect the stability
- Historical Style: Modern: Art Deco
