Chain BR22-U Vintage Chandelier Chain with Unwelded Brass links and Oval Joining links

Chains are priced by the foot and this product will be supplied as a continuous length if possible. Chains with unwelded links can be re-sized to lengthen or shorten the chain as needed.

Link Size Link Type Height (in) Width (in) Thickness (in)
U58 Primary link 2.28 1.42 0.16
Connecting link 1 11/16 3/16

Variant Max Load (lbs) Weight per Foot (lbs)
U58 30 0.28

The “weight per foot” signifies the weight of a 1-foot section the respective chain, not the weight a 1 ft section can sustain. For example, if you order 8 ft of a chain that weights 0.25 lbs/ft, the total weight of that chain will be 2 lbs.

The “max load” is the amount of weight a chain can safely hold, regardless of how long it is. When selecting a chain, we recommend calculating the total weight of chain based on the length you need, like in the example above. Make sure that your total hanging weight (= total weight of fixture + total weight of chain) does not exceed the stated weight capacity.

Hang pendant lights or extend your chandelier with style using our standard brass chain BR22-U. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of solid decorative links that are connected by unwelded oval links. The unique diamond links feature an etched pattern that adds an understated appeal that's perfect for modern fixtures and decor, but is so universally appealing that it complements vintage, traditional, industrial, and mid century modern lighting fixtures as well. Replace your old chain on pendant lights and fixtures weighing up to 30 lbs for an instant refresh of any space. Since the oval links on this chain are unwelded, they can be opened up to adjust the length as needed or directly attach to what it will be hanging from. The versatility of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, BR22-U can also be used to hang indoor plants, picture frames, mirrors, wall decor, and even as curtain ties. Since brass is naturally rust-resistant, it can be used to hang large outdoor signs, flower baskets, and other garden decor. Additional uses for this chain can be for crafts, costumes, and hobbies, as well as in home improvement and DIY projects. Available in multiple finishes, you can easily elevate any lighting fixture (literally!)

Antique looking chain

I have an antique stained glass hanging light, (1920) with a very small chain and I was looking for a longer chain that looked approximately the same. Brass with a decorative stamp on the individual links. I am very please with the vintage brass chain that I purchased. It will go with my hanging light and is very unique. I live in Canada and the delivery was quite timely and convenient. Very happy with my purchase and RCH!
