Antique Williamson 5 Light Art Deco Slip Shade Chandelier

ART DECO-Modernism


Designer VerificationNone

Here is a 1930s chandelier designed and made by R. Williamson & Co., and marketed in the 1930s by Beardslee, who had bought the Williamson company for their excellent designs.  Every lovely decorated metal panel of this great light is impressed with the RW&Co logo.  This particular RW mark is so early, we believe it was made before the purchase by Beardslee, since later marks spelled out the entire name, instead of using the company’s initials mark.

What a gorgeous fixture and in such wonderful condition. The fixture has been totally rewired. At present, this light has a drop of 26 inches.  It has a diameter of about 17 inches.  Canopy diameter is 5 5/8 inches.

This light has its original deco polychrome color finish which has been very beautifully maintained.  The rewiring was also done with the utmost care. The sockets are new by Leviton....and are the identical type that Williamson used in the 1930s.  The goal is to maintain the originality of the fixture as much as possible. does...look great.  Each socket is rated for 100 watts so achieving 500 watts of light is very easy to do.  The shades are in fantastic condition too. We will also be supplying the bracket (crossbar) for this light so literally,  you can hang this light and have it working minutes after receiving it.  Really an outstanding light.

A great value for an outstanding; scarce; rewired; and signed Antique Art Deco Chandelier.
