Rare Jesson & Birkett WAS Benson/Powell Arts and Crafts Copper Chandelier & Wall Lights
A complete and highly rare matching suite of Arts and Crafts lighting comprising planished copper chandelier with matching wall lights by the Jesson Birkett and Company of Birmingham fully complete and importantly retaining their perfect original matching set of James Powell/WAS Benson candy stripe vaseline "jellyfish" glass shades (made for both WAS Benson and Jesson and Birkett) retaining its patented rich original iridescent metallic patina.
From the Jesson and Birkett catalogue 'A Selection of Light Fittings' the chandelier is very similar to model number E1317.
The beautiful organic design and execution is both technically skilled and highly accomplished and a most rare find recently removed from an Aberdeenshire industrialists architect designed granite home.
Date: Circa 1900
Condition: The whole suite remains in excellent untouched original condition with no blemishes to the glass. There is an inconsequential original factory re-join to the main arm of one wall light bracket which is barely noticeable and mentioned for accuracy purpose only as there is no structural nor aesthetic detriment. The suite has been re-wired with antique style black silk twisted flex ready for installation.
Size: Height 93cm from ceiling rose (can be changed to suit requirement), 44cm diameter to edge of shades, diameter of ceiling rose 8cm, maximum protrusion of wall lights from wall including shades 36cm.
