The paint looks great, has some chips on the tips of the points mainly from use and storage. Overall these are in magnificent condition ready for hanging and immediate use.
The design is for hanging with 4 foot chains and they plugged in on a ceiling plug in standard type recepticals. Extremely easy to use however can be altered for your specific application. These are huge and heavy! These were made from steel plates artisan welded.These are of a very brutalist construction. The welding must have taken an eternity for the builder to have done. The seams are coarse ungrinded and not machined perfect, left that way purposely for the brutalist effect we believe and they look fabulouslook!
We were told these were made in the circa mid 1950s and believed to have been a sign maker most likely built to a specific order. These were not a mass production light by anymeans, there is a very brutalist effect to the welding, built ground up by hand As a matched set. These will look unbelievably impressive in your store or any application you choose. The lights are massive so I had a hard time capturing the sheer magnitude and presence in photos.
We took photos in many different settings and used two different styled bulbs to give an idea of how just the bulbs alone can change the atomic appearance. I think long tubular bulbs would look great as well. The light's hold 9 candelabra sized bulbs each. The lights measure approximately 3' feet in circumference and 2' feet in height, and the hanging chains are 4' feet with 6' plug in cords. Talk with your builder if you are unsure with installation, these are heavy and should have an attatched safety catch as well as to insure your mounting location is suitable for a heavy chandelier, these are not your normal residential home size lighting, however would look awsome in a classic car Den/Garage or the ultimate Man Cave.
Many more photo's upon request, know what your purchasing. We will be glad to answer any and all questions. What you see in the photos is exactly what arrives at your door step.
