This product is not available for sale.


Perhaps in an attempt to look less like a gas fixture and more like an electric one, this 2-arm chandelier takes a different approach to mounting the shades, installing them upside-down above the light source rather than right side-up and below as was common. Add to this different look a pair of fantastic blue opalescent hobnail gas shades and an outstanding original oxidized or mottled copper finish, and you've got a real showstopper.

Fixtures of this distinctive type were typically acetylene burners. Because acetylene gas was easily generated at home using water and carbide bricks or pellets, it remained a viable and popular fuel source for homes that didn't have access to electricity (especially on farms and in rural areas) right through the Depression. This fixture's gas burners have been converted to electric sockets, with new socket covers to match..

  • Notes: brass socket covers have been refinished to match fixture
  • Historical Style: Period Basics: Classic
