Antique swing-arm (left to right) double-pulley lamp from a dentist's office, complete with pulley mechanism, extension arm and 4 Holophane glass shades. It is believed to have been manufactured by the Universal Light Co of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Halophane glass is distinguished for its even light dispersal and obscuring the bulb.  Is shown here with 60-watt bulbs but you could use up to 75-watt bulbs.

 

The height of the lamp portion is adjustable, just pull it down or lift it up.

 

A switch on the bottom of the center finial lets you turn on 1, 2, 3 or all 4 globes.

Ready to hang, plug in and enjoy.  Was disassembled for restoration that included sandblasting, repainting, nickel plating and rewiring.  The braking weight is a period-appropriate reproduction.  Two of the Holophane shades each have a 2" long row of chipped nub tips. The prismatic nature of the globes obscures these flaws nicely, both when illuminated and not

 

Chandelier portion is 23" x 23" x 13".  Extension arm is 40" wide as shown.  It could be extended as far as 50"- 60" but we do not recommend it because that would put stress on the components, particularly the wall plate
