These stunningly crafted Beardslee sconces feature a handsome geometric art deco design and give off a warm glow when illuminated.

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

We find that early antique lighting was designed as objects of art and we treat each fixture with careful attention to preserve original beauty. Our fixtures are cleaned, rewired & are ready to hang, following UL standards. We can work with you on code requirements.
