THIS IS AN ART DECO 3 LIGHTS ( UP TO 150 WATTS EACH, NOT INCLUDED ) CEILING FIXTURE WHICH IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH NEW WIRES . THIS CAST IRONDECO PERIOD LIGHTING "INSTRUMENT" WAS CREATED IN 1930's BY MARKEL CO. AND HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY REWIRED AND REFURBISHED ~~ ALL WITH THE INTENTION OF RETURNING BACK TO ORIGINAL BEAUTY. Markel Electric Products (MEP) was founded by Joseph Markel (1888-1966) in 1920. Markel was born in Lithuania and came to the United States in 1891. The company was located at 145 Seneca Street in Buffalo, New York. A century ago, this was a bustling industrial area. Down the street was the thriving Larkin Company, and their globally famous Administration Building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.Today, the area is but a shadow of its former thriving self, and block after block is vacant. The Larkin Administration Building was demolished in the 1950s -- a stunning act of cultural vandalism. All large American cities once had busy industrial areas employing millions of workers, most of whom lived just blocks from the factories and walked (or took a streetcar) to work. All this seems like an ancient time, a lost age far, far away when America actually made stuff. Quality stuff, too. We have had a lot of questions about the light bulbs we use. First, there are no glass globes on this fixture. What you are seeing are crystal cut decorative halogen light bulbs. They are medium base 60 watt G.E. Halogen bulbs we purchased from Lowes.com. They are not included in the purchase. DIMENSIONS ARE : 12" DIAMETER. AND 5 IN. FROM CEILING TO THE FINIAL TIP . I APPRECIATE YOUR VIEWING TIME AND WISH THE BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!!!! Thanks for visiting my auction. Please inspect the pictures carefully and ask any questions.
