Large Art Deco Theater Fixture w/ Etched & Textured Shade Item # R7293
Following the dazzling worldwide success of the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris, Art Deco was introduced to the world as the style of the future. Characterized by symmetrical patterns using straight lines and geometry, as well as stylized and angular interpretations of natural forms, Art Deco designers employed a variety of finishes and polishes to affect their distinctive and futuristic designs. Tiered, stacked and elongated architectural forms informed the same massing in lighting, from Sky-scraper shades to Ziggurat finials. While Art Deco lighting was typical in commercial and municipal structures in its day, these impressive fixtures make great focal points for today’s homes of any style. Transitional iterations include Streamline and Moderne – the entire period spans from the mid-1920’s through the early 1940’s.
- Historical Style: Art Deco
- Originally found lining the ceiling of a 1930s theater, this remarkable square light features a deeply etched shade, complete with glue chip texture, mounted a cast metal flush fixture.
- We believe this was made by the venerable Consolidated Glass Company. The mottled etching and character of the beautiful glass is characteristic of their excellence.
- Condition Notes: A chip can be seen along the edge of the shade, which is not quite hidden by the fixture when installed. The chip can be turned to away from the main focus of the room.
- Bulbs not included.
