Art Deco Blue Ice Glass Pendant c. 1930's
This blue "cracked ice" glass globe has a geometric stepped skyscraper shape that gives it a strong Art Deco style, but the softer pressed design on the light blue glass pendant is an interesting contrast. It can be attributed to Phoenix Glass Co., Pittsburgh, PA. (organized in 1880), the first glass company west of the Allegheny Mountains to produce opalescent and rich pressed & cut glass. Originally, this light would have adorned department stores, hotel lobbies, banks and pharmacies, but now can be very hard to find. The opalescent blue color of the shade fades to clear as the light is turned up (see pictures). You will find it a lovely textured light when clear. The polished chrome fixture could be easily shortened depending on your ceiling height and is topped with a simple round chrome canopy that does not compete with the striking globe. It will certainly be a unique ceiling accent light in your home no matter what room you choose.
This pendant has been rewired and seems to be in good condition, but you should use your own judgement about it's safety of use as is. I figured USPS Retail Ground shipping cost using one large box, but there possibly could be some savings using 2 boxes and sending USPS Priority.
