Beginning in 1854, Mitchell, Vance, & Co. was the leading light fixture company in the industry. It pioneered electric light fixtures that were based on the existing gas fixtures and outfitted for both. In the upcoming Lighting and Antiques Online Only Auction, presented by Renew Gallery, a Renaissance Revival-style light fixture by Mitchell, Vance, & Co. is featured. Made around 1875, this six-light fixture is fitted with medallions of Robin Hood and Maid Marion. It has been converted from gas to full electric and has etched ball shades. This example is among the last surviving light fixtures from the Renaissance Revival.
Other items included in the auction are a 1910 Tiffany-style lantern, an 1890 hand-painted circus carousel section, and a 1903 two-tiered country chandelier from a post office in Kansas City, Missouri. A 1912 stained and leaded beveled glass window can also be found, along with two 1842 books on the history of Canada. To view the whole collection and register to bid, visit Bidsquare.
