Beautiful Antique Figural Silver Plated Chandelier with Blue Cameos, c. 1910 NC900
A gorgeous antique figural chandelier with cameos, in its original silver plate, c. 1910. This five-light chandelier begins with a silver plated canopy festooned with draperies and bordered in an egg-and-dart pattern. The chandelier body is crowned with a volute loop finial with leaves; below, five small arms with blue leaves support crystal spear prisms. Five fluted columns come down to form the chandelier body, surrounding a smooth glass ball dangling in the center and connected with beautiful blue and silver cameos, each hung with a prism. The columns flare out to form the chandelier arms, each supported underneath by fabulous silver plated volute pieces with acanthus leaves. The chandelier finishes in a blue acanthus medallion with a glass ball dangling from a strand of beads. This light fixture is in very good antique condition; there is a minor crack in the canopy (pictured) which is barely noticeable. The chandelier has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures 19” wide and 26” tall, and the fixture is 42” long overall.
