A 1940s Beauty!

A fabulous 1940s silver crystal chandelier by Levolite!


There are five original wheel-cut glass shades. Wow.


There are five original crystal beaded drops. Wow.


I love fixtures from the 1940s, and at some point I really need to buy a 1940s just so I can fill it with such beauties.

The 1940s have a distinct aesthetic. It is post-Deco, not really Mid-Century Modern, and pre-Atomic Age. It is in the middle; an era which has no name.

    Hi Ross.
    What a lovely chandelier. As you know, my intention is to one day tour the wonderful Cross House; and I regularly peruse your latest collection of lighting hoping I find one to bring back down to my holiday home in Florida. This one today is definitely a contender!

    Wheelcut glass shades? Those craftsmen have a “light” touch.
