Antique Duplexalite Opaline Glass Ceiling Pendant Chandelier
- An incredibly rare Duplexalite ceiling pendant, American circa 1920. - This looks to be one of their standard models encompassing from top to bottom, a ceiling canopy, original chain, socket housing and three thin metal arms which hold the large metal shade and glass bottom. - The middle shade retains its original brass tin overlay featuring floral medallions and swag design, champagne in colour. The milk glass bottom shade with raised sunburst design and hanging finial is marked, "Duplexalite Corporation New York Patented March 8 1921-April 25 1911 Other Patents Pending". - These pendants are stunning when lit, the light refracts upwards to the outside of the large metal shade, thus a highly diffused and warm subtle glow to the underneath. - 102cm high from top of ceiling rose to bottom of finial, 41cm wide, 36cm length of chain. - Rewired in matching braided flex and PAT tested.
