Very unusual antique light fixture with its original conical opaline glass shade, dating from the early 1900s. This pendant light begins with a tilting chrome canopy, allowing it to be mounted on a sloped ceiling. It has a chrome pole with an elongated fitter to support its original cone-shaped opaline glass shade. The conical white shade features a brown foliate and vine pattern around the middle, tapering to a pattern of starbursts and papyrus leaves. As detailed in its original patent, the fixture was designed with its unique shade to "intercept all the light that normally would be distributed downward and redirect the major portion of it over the broadest possible ceiling area above the device." This light fixture is in excellent antique condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass, just the expected fleabites around the edges. It has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures approximately 15-1/2" wide, 12" tall, and 32-1/2" long overall. Coordinating light fixtures available under items #NC1341-RW and #NC1342-RW.
