There are six original plaster chandeliers and six reproductions shown below, originally manufactured by Curtis Lighting of Chicago in the 1920's.  We have posted a catalog sheet on the fixture from the 1921 Curtis catalog.  Can you tell the difference between the reproductions and the originals?  The original medium base lamps were replaced with three (3) F39BX lamps , electronic ballasts, and asymmetric, specular aluminum reflectors.
