Markel 2300-Line Slipper Shade Chandelier, c1935

Item #R1959


The mix of amber-tinted glass shades and coppery gilt polychrome on this 5-light fixture from Markel give it a warm and rich color character that would complement many late Depression-era interiors. Its pipe-stem construction allows it to be installed in rooms where a low ceiling might prevent the use of similar chain-hung fixtures.

"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.
