This amazing, 1930s vintage Art Deco chandelier has all the hallmarks of the style-- a chrome finish, flared trumpet shapes at the top, custard glass shades, and an airflow bullet nose with a Bakelite switch at the bottom. It still has its original chain and canopy and has been rewired with a new top wire and ground wire.

The 3-way switch at the bottom turns on two lights, then three lights, then all five. The uranium custard glass shades also glow green under UV light! The naturally occurring fluorescence is safe and not due to radiation itself (the levels are infinitesimally small, similar to other things we come into contact with daily). 

Please note, this chandelier is in very good, original vintage condition with only minor pitting to the chrome finish (which doesn't show up in photographs).
