Fixtures at the Store
As of February 12, 2008.
These fixtures are available at the store (Park Street Antiques, 1519
Park Street, Alameda CA 94501; 510-523-0895). I bring as many as I can
to Alameda's Antiques by the Bay show; the next show is the first
Sunday in August and I expect
to be in space L 26.
I am happy to sell these fixtures directly and can ship them. I only
charge exact shipping - no handling fees.

I always check wiring on the fixtures I sell. If the wiring is recent
and appropriate, I keep it, but usually I rewire the entire fixture
using new, high-quality wire. I use "cloth-covered" wire in all the
places where the wiring will show; this wire has either rayon or cotton
thread wound over the insulation to give a beautiful vintage look.
These fixtures are ready to install - always complete with ceiling caps
and crossbars. If you need a chain-hung fixture to be longer or
shorter, I will modify it at no charge.
Please remember that these are antique, vintage fixtures. They are NOT
new. The glass might have wear marks or small "fleabite"chips at the
fitters or open ends; paint is not perfect. These are quick-and-dirty
pictures; I can provide more details on request. I try to be honest,
forthright, and accomodating. My eBay ID is "annemey".
I have divided the fixtures into these categories:
2 Arm Pan Fixture
Cute small 2 arm pan fixture, rewired.
Pair of Matching 2-bulb Pan Fixtures
Solid brass matching 2 light fixtures, rewired. The decorative sleeves
on the bulb sockets can pop off and then a UNO fitter screws on; the
UNO fitters (available at $3.50 each) can then hold a 2 1/4" shade.
5 Arm Nickel with Prisms
Beautiful nickel-plated 5 arm candle chandelier with prisms and smooth
ball finial, new wiring, vintage candle covers. Takes regular
Victorian 5 Candle Chandelier
Victorian-style 5 candle chandelier, paint retouched. Bronze/copper
tones. New sockets and wiring, takes standard-sized bulbs, $125.00.
Spanish Brass Chandeliers
I have some Spanish Brass chandeliers on their way - thesea re being
refurbished; I hafve pictures of them in their un-restored state. When
complete these will be dressed with crystals, checked and re-wired,
with new candle covers and dressed in a complete set of prisms.
8 arm Spanish Brass Chandelier "Waterfall"
I think of this as a "waterfall" because of the effect of the top
decorations - and this is missing one. I've found replacements, so this
will soon be available for $250.00.
8 arm Spanish Brass
Chandelier with "Pineapple" Center
Here's another Spanish Brass chandelier. It's pictured sitting on a
chair, which does not show it in its best light (so to speak). It has a
desirable "pineapple' shaped center and long decorative arms. It will
be beautiful when the oxidation is removed, and it's polished, and has
its gleaming crystals... for $200.00.
4 light "Birdcage" Petite Chandelier
I also have a 4 arm petite chandelier in the form of a bird cage, and
it needs very littel to be ready. It was put together with steel
screws, and left in a damp location, so some of the brass was stained
with rust. Re-wired anddressed with prisms, complete with ceiling cap,
this will be $199.00. (Again, this is pictured sitting. The top arms
were damaged and will be replaced.)
5 arm Virden Cast Iron chandelier
This is a beautiful piece. Luckily, Rejuvenation (www.rejuvenation.com)
has replicated a fixture very similar to this one, and they generously
allowed me to buy the replacement bits and pieces to restore this
light. The supplied (in brass) one candle cup and the top decorative
piece. Completely rewired. Has a motif that some people see as coyotes,
dogs, snakes, or some mustical animal. (I do have matching sconces and
possibly a single light hall/foyer light, pending.)
Cup Shade Fixtures
Cup shade fixtures have cup-shaped shades that sit in a holder - there
are no screws to hold the shades in place; gravity and the presence of
a light bulb hold the shades. These were popular in the 20s and 30s.
Usually the shades have a base (or neck) of 1 7/8 inches. I
collect these shades and try to put together matching sets, as they are
often found in sets of four (because one of the five broke). Whenever I
have an additional shade I include it with the fixture so that, if you
lose one, you have a replacement! Many are "custard" glass, like milk
glass but more warmly colored; these were often made in
Czechloslovakia. Most - but not all-
cup shades are interchangable. Some of the fitters are fussy about the
depth of the neck of the shade.
You can usually use regular light bulbs with these, though with some of
the shorter shades, you might prefer a short bulb.
Rejuvenation (www.rejuvenation.com) sells replacement cup shades for
$25.00 to $28.00. You can also find them through Antique Lamp Supply,
www.antiquelampsupply.com, such as number 08562.
5 Arm Custard Center
5 arm custard glass center stem fixture, brass toned, and 5
matching custard glass shades. New wiring. New bottom turn switch has 4
settings: 2 on, 3 on, all 5 on, or all off- nice for mood
NOTE: the above pictured shades are no longer available, but I have
swaped them with another set of custard colored shades. I still have 4
of the above-pictured shades...
5 Arm Brass/Chrome/Glass Cup Shade Fixture
5 arm cup shade fixture, chrome and brass with pretty glass stem.
Includes 1 extra shade. Shades look like milk or custard glass but
actually have an applied enamel-like finish. New wiring. $175.00
3 arm Opalescent Cup Shade Fixture
This beauty, with original paint (somewhat chipped but very nice)
boasts beautiful opalescent shades that show a beautiful "fire" when
lit. The shades nicely echo the lines of the fixture with their
3 arm and 5 arm Monax Petalware Cup Shade Fixtures
I've coveted these for a long time! You can now have a dining room
fixture whose shades match your Monax Petalware plates!
I have a 5 shade and 3 shade fixture available. Pictures coming....
3 arm Cup Shade Fixture
This is a lovely 3 shade fixture, with clean and simple lines. The stem
boasts a clear glass accent. Rewired and ready to go.
Bowl Shade Fixtures
Bowl shades are shaped like bowls with a small notch in one side. The
fixtures often have metal arms to hold the bowls. Somtimes there is a
bump on the outside of the glass bowl, under the notch. Some bowl
shades are interchangable but most are not. I do have a small
collection of bowl shades.
-None currently available-
Slip Shade Fixtures
Slip shades, or slipper shades, are a very special category and
are NOT interchangable - and some look very similar. I am always glad
to help people find replacements but it can be a long process! I do
have a large personal inventory of single slip shades as well.

paint is chippy. $70.00.

Candle Fixture with Pink Glass Discs
This is a great Decofixture - and the awesome folks at Decorum, San
Francisco, have sconces that match this, and are much more awesome than
this. Still - this is a great 3 candle fixture.
(Picture on its way....)
