This fixture is just lovely with pretty, colorful floral highlights. It was painstakingly stripped and sanded down to bare metal. It was then painted with a rust prohibitive base coat before all the casting details were painted by hand... The final step was applying a coat of polyurethane to seal and protect the paint from scratching or damage.
Painted finishes were very popular during this era and the process was called polychroming. Only the really wealthy people could afford the solid bronze or brass fixtures.The classic bare-bulb vintage style is very popular right now and this one would look awesome in any room of your home. It is in perfect working condition. The original heavy duty porcelain sockets were removed, thoroughly cleaned and tested. It has all new wiring. It will come with wire nuts and mounting hardware. (This is a cast iron fixture and will require being screwed into a good support in the ceiling). If bulbs are shown, they are not included in the sale, but are available at your local Home Depot, Lowes or online.
I would recommend 40 watt bulbs. Dimensions: Approximately 15 wide, and will hang down from the ceiling approx. 18 (including standard size bulbs). We appreciate your interest in our lighting products and will be adding more in the near future, so please look for more to come!
Thanks for looking and please feel free to send us a message, should you have any questions. I post a lot of photos so that you can see the condition.
