Pan-style fixtures were wildly popular during the 1920s and 1930s. Such fixtures are defined by a pan-shaped body with protruding arms.
The above chandelier was in an antique store. Its finish? A dull brown. Initially, I passed it by. A second look made me suspect that the dull brown was perhaps a century of dirt. What, I wondered, was under?
A long soaking revealed a pewter-like finish! With gold accents. Lovely!
I enjoy looking at the restored chandelier. The leaping candles remind me of ballet dancers on point! I also love the sweet little tassels under the arms.
