Really, all 3 finishes would be great choices. It just depends on what would look best with your particular space! Without any pictures, it's kind of hard to tell, so I'll offer a few from each finish. Since you say it's a small front foyer, we're going to keep it close to the ceiling and show flush mounts.

Brass:

2. http://www.lightsonline.com/flush-mounts/hudson-valley-newport-flush-flush-mount-6515-agb/
3. http://www.lightsonline.com/flush-mounts/hudson-valley-geneva-flush-mount-709-agb/
4. http://www.lightsonline.com/flush-mounts/hudson-valley-nassau-2-lt-flush-mount-6413-agb/

Antique nickel:

3. http://www.lightsonline.com/quoizel-home-interior/quoizel-taylor-semi-flush-mount-ty1721an/ (This is a semi-flush mount, so it's not exactly the same, but it does have sort of a fun 30s flair to it.)
4. http://www.lightsonline.com/hinkley-ceiling-lights/hinkley-darien-3-light-semi-flush-mount-in-polished-antique-nickel-finish-3961pl/ (Same as the third example)

Black:
