High and mighty like the mountain it is named for, the Everest is so big it almost didn’t fit in our photo booth! This is a palatial chandelier, ready to take center stage in any large room and command attention from anyone who enters. The attributes of this light are many: tulip-style enclosed sockets with finely incised bobeches; beautifully curved arms, dropping down to light-weight tassels; sweeping upward arm supports moving toward a heavier, flower-centered tassel; a heavily-cast dot-and-dash pattern circling the main body; and a stunning, high Art Deco ceiling cap, which clocks in at almost 3 pounds! Note that the Everest has significant loss to its original surface. Its domed undercarriage has had a hard life, translating into dings and waves and difficulty getting it to fit flush in all areas around the main fixture. The undercarriage does have an interesting finish, sort of silvery gold combination. One of the smaller tassels has a split along the joint line. The Everest has a drop of 43 inches and is about 27 inches wide. She has new wiring and new cardboard insulators, and is relatively easy to hang. Full disclosure: we believe that the ceiling cap pictured with the light was cast in lead, of all things. This shouldn’t pose a problem once it is installed, and it would be wise to wear gloves when handling it. If this makes you nervous, we can substitute another ceiling cap, although it isn’t as stunning as the one pictured. It would be difficult to ship this light, so it is local pickup or delivery only to the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area.
