I purchase the chandelier. A week later it arrived. And I was HORRIFIED by the packing. HORRIFIED. I gingerly and with great trepidation pulled out the five glass shades…and none were broken. A miracle. Nothing else could explain it. Oh, but what about the delicate glass stem? Also unbroken!
I then looked at the ceiling cap. Lighting companies normally stamped these inside. Was there a marking or label?
There was. Four numbers, in black, 4585. I instantly recognizes the style of numbers, and the numbering sequence, as being typical of Lightolier.
My heart started racing. For, I love love love Lightolier, and their high quality.
Had I unknowingly purchased a Lightolier? Golly.
I raced to my stash of Lightolier catalogs and looked through them. Please please please let this fixture be proved a Lightolier.
Well, the good fortune of the day continued…
