4-light polychrome chandelier with sunburst slipper shades.

Produced from Chicago’s Premium lighting supplier in the 1930’s, this chandelier signed Williamson & Co, a truly rare find of antique art deco glass and the ‘slipper shade’. 

Often this design is signed both Williamson and Beardslee, a lighting firm out of Delaware who acquired Williamson during this time period because of their ‘excellent designs’. The two companies patented projects included molded glass ‘lugs’ or what we may refer to as the ‘Slipper shade’ presently. In the 1929 patent - the ‘slipper shade’ was created to provide novel and simple means for mounting a shade on the fixture in a secure manner’ and conversely a way to ‘readily and quickly detach at any time for cleaning or other purposes’ – without requiring manipulation of set screws or mechanics to mount or release the glass. 

Genius, perhaps during the 30’s the only oversight of the design was the ease that the glass could be removed, or knocked out from the mount system, causing the glass, 85 years later to become quite rare.

The two firms also utilized the newest materials and technologies – such as aluminum. Here, the back plates are cast aluminum which neatly captures the multi-level relief deco pattern and original polychrome finish gold, mint pink & green.

The shades, free of chips or flaws shows off the Williamson’s flawless stencil technique with and browns over a thin, glossy milk glass.
