1940’s 4 tube art deco fluorescent fixture « on: October 23, 2023, 03:14:03 PM » Author: Lightning
I am helping with a 4th generation hardware store liquidation and there are 10 of the pictured fluorescent  art deco light fixtures.  Looking for a value as they will be sold as part of liquidation.  How much should I ask?  I have someone interested and I have not been able to find any info on internet.  9 haven’t been active for many years but one of them has been in continuous use since the 1940’s.
Any info or help would be greatly appreciated.  Would love to see them go to someone who would appreciate them instead of in the dumpster. 

Thanks, LG Sandifer

I think $300 or $500 might be an okay price for one of these fixtures as there are very few remaining in existence and their ornamentation is very beautiful and something you can’t see on newer fixtures. If you want to sell these fixtures to LG members, I highly recommend listing this thread in the “For Sale or Trade” section of the forum.

These are Midwest Chandelier Co fixtures. Made in the early 1940s. You see they still got the glass in. Very rare. Most no longer have the glass.
