This is a difficult-to-find brass 3+3 gas/electric chandelier in fully restored condition. It’s dated Dec. 9 ’90 and Sep 29 ’96 on the fitter rings (that’s 1890 and 1896). The shades are vintage, and the vining pattern on the gas shades that face upward matches the vining pattern on the electric shades that face downward. A wall switch would be necessary to operate this fixture.
We used flicker bulbs in the upward facing lights to emulate the flame that was there in the late 1800s. Any regular bulb would work in its place if extra light is needed/preferred. We used regular Edison bulbs in the electric lights facing downward. The rope tubing adds a nice accent, as does the design on each of the gas arms. The chandelier also has its original gas valves on each of the three gas arms.
The chandelier measures 33 1/2″ long by 24″ wide. It would be perfect for a dining room, entryway, staircase, master bedroom, library, office, master bath, etc. We carefully converted the gas arms to electric, and we rewired the electric arms and added a ground wire to meet today’s electric codes.
