Hi Dear forum members

I have purchased a chandelier and all I was told by the seller at a flea market that it is approx 1920. When I was rewiring, the sockets had "Benjamin" printed on them.

If anyone can give me any additional info I greatly appreciate. From my very surface reserch on internet it looks like something Spanish/Gothic? 

Many thanks

Benjamin did produce sockets and socket clusters in the early 20th century. Google images for "Benjamin socket."

Thanks! Yes it looks like socket by themselves have some interesting history and i am more interested in the history of  the chandelier itself. Maybe regarding style or who would be the maker. From my searches i couldnt find the same anywhere.

The thing I notice is the twisted wrought iron circle that supports everything.  It is almost always a band, with or without cut outs.  Then the points look similar to barn door hardware.  But Spanish, Gothic all seem to be in the right direction.
