Before. After.

I purchased this circa-1940 Moderne chandelier because I love such fixtures but also because the chandelier did not appear to need much work. But, after I received it, I realized that it was missing something.


Ten empty notches indicated that the chandelier had five insert glass panels originally, long lost. So I had 1/4-round glass panels made which seem…


…just perfect. And pretty fabulous, too!


Under the metal shade is this delicious Hobnail-edged glass insert, and a glass sphere finial. Yummy.


Even unlighted the fixture is a knock-out. I am mad for the upper flourish.
