Vintage Brass Chandelier   Ampinco Circa 1926

        You are bidding on a unique vintage chandelier, circa 1926. The down rod is stamped with AMPINCO, No. 12862, PATENTED, USA-6-22-26, CANADA, 6-8-26.


It is all metal, non-ferrous brass. It weighs 5.5 pounds and is 17 inches tall by 20 inches wide. It has 5 arms supporting metal and ceramic fixtures with standard screw bases. It has the original cloth covered wiring and although it is very frayed, I took a calculated risk and applied power to it to confirm the wiring integrity, and it works.


        I will include the new lamps with it. It features a decorative hanging double-faced cameo of a woman. The same cameo is on each of the five arm brackets. I wonder who she is? The lamp holders have red cardboard cover tubes with white raised drippings to simulate dripping candle wax. It has painted highlights of red, blue and green throughout the metalworking. I am not quit sure what held the ceiling dress cover in place. There are indentations on the threaded down rod that suggests that there was once a thumbscrew brace that was used. I am sure some of you know way more about it than I ever will.


       This was purchased at a second hand shop and I asked if it had a known history and a story behind it, but it was unknown. Surely it was in a cathedral or a now haunted stately mansion. Oh the stories it could tell if it could only talk. Buy it now and you earn the right to make your own story. It will be carefully and tightly packed for a safe journey to you, perhaps just in time for that added touch for your Christmas decorating in your entrance to your great hall. Have fun bidding. I have faith that it will go far beyond the low starting price. The funds will go towards the support of a large wonderful family with lots of tuition bills to pay.
