LOUIS XV STYLE GILT BRONZE AND DOMED GLASS CHANDELIER
France, Circa 1900
Item # 130008VHP12


A most attractive candelabrum from the turn of the century, this French Louis XV style chandelier features an electrified stem and untouched gilt bronze torchiere arms raising candle wells.  Often these candle wells were drilled for electricity, but each arm has been left untouched and raises pure wells and candle drips while hosting a series of light bulbs around the base of the stem.  The arms raise from behind the pierced bronze rim that holds the ribbed glass dome, this locked in place with a large handsome cast bronze foot from which a grape cluster droplet finial gracefully hangs.  

Refined and most striking, it will make a dramatic statement in whatever room it joins.

Measurements
: 21 1/4" diameter; approximately 29" total height to the top of the first loop
