Unique Skeletal X-Ray Chandelier

$2,800

About

The skeletal nature of this lamp suggests that it once was the long-hidden workings of a more decorative fixture. Liberated from its original housing it’s ready to make a statement all its own. The chandelier was manufactured by the national X-ray reflector company, an important early 20th century maker known for its unique mercury glass mirrored shades. Early X-ray advertising for their reflectors promised to “Tire Eyes Less!” by reducing electric glare. This impressive lamp holds a collection of five shades. Each shade has been stripped to clear for more ambient light and to showcase the nice Edison filament bulbs. This is also the first fixture I have found with signed sockets by X-ray. The lamps drop can be changed by adding or removing chain links or changing the length of the upper pipe.
