My online vintage lighting store.
1920s pan-style chandelier. Looked like junk. But…was it?
I like the distinctive two-tone finish.
You polished that up beautifully! I have one almost identical that was in far worse shape. After trying to polish it up, I had to resort to painting it instead. I did a two tone paint scheme- deep turquoise with silver accents. Then I found another one! It was in equally bad shape, so I cleaned it up and painted it to match. I love that they focus the light down, where it is needed.
What I can really appreciate about your process over other lighting restorers is that you took this light, which likely cost you less than $50, that which almost everyone else would have passed on, and made it into something valuable again.
Even though I hate pan lights, I love seeing something that I would have regarded as “junk” saved from the scrap heap.
I try my hardest when I’m hunting for new inventory to only buy the highest quality stuff, that which would have been in mansions. Maybe I need to branch out more, and pander to these easy pickings…
