Historic 1926 Casa Del Mar Hotel Chandelier
30% OFF! Built in 1926 along the sands of Santa Monica beach in Southern California, the Club Casa del Mar quickly became a magnet for the newly rising Hollywood elite. The hotel, designed by architect Charles Plummer, was created in the Italian Renaissance revival style, exuding great opulence. The hotel operated until the onset of World War 2, when it was re-purposed as a military troop barracks. It was closed by 1960, then reopened in 1969 as Synanon, a drug rehabilitation facility. After more changes, it was re-opened as the Hotel Casa del Mar in 1999. In 2014, Michael Smith redesigned the lobby and restaurants. The hotel shares the property with the smaller, but popular Shutters Hotel. This impressive jeweled copper chandelier is one of the originals from the hotel (we have two available). Its grandiose look and scale should blend in to many styles of interiors, from Italianette to Spanish Revival. The chandeliers are in fine original condition, wit a lovely patina to the copper bodies. They are supported by a trio of rods, wrapped in silk cord, and decorated with a silk tassel in the center. The body houses a cluster of lamp sockets, for ample illumination. They appear to have been electrically upgraded at one time, and are in fine working condition.
