THIS IS AN ART DECO 5 LIGHTS (REGULAR MEDIUM SIZE SOCKET UP TO 150 WATTS, NOT INCLUDED ) CEILING FIXTURE WHICH IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH NEW WIRES . THIS IS A VERY RARE DECO PERIOD LIGHTING "INSTRUMENT" WAS CREATED IN 1920's BY FAMOUS MARKEL (MEP). AND HAS BEEN RESTORED ~~ ALL WITH THE INTENTION OF RETURNING HER BACK TO HER 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. DIMENSIONS ARE : 15" DIAMETER AND 19" IN. FROM CEILING TO THE BOTTOM OF FIXTURE (WITHOUT BULB). FIXTURE ITSELF IS 14" . 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.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.
