“BEARDSLEE” Beaux-Arts Gas/Electric Light Fixture (6-Light)
Ca. 1905 A powerful top-end converted gas/electric fixture by “Beardslee” of Chicago.
Electricity was still a novelty at the turn of the century and it was common for the wealthy to have electric fixtures with a reliable gas “back-up”.
All original and converted to all electric; pattern-matched throughout with ‘Acanthus Leaf’ design and large ring- both characteristics of the period.
Satin brass finish with floret detail on the Greek inspired arms.
