Breathtaking Antique Five Light Bronze Chandelier with Original Prisms, 1800s, NC1683-RW
Large antique five-light bronze chandelier with original prisms, dating from the 19th century. This stunning chandelier begins in a bronze canopy with petal and beaded trim, coming down in chain to a decorative loop finial. A glass baluster body runs the length of the chandelier with delicate bronze bands curling out. The bands and body are draped with garlands of faceted glass beads and smooth teardrop prisms, creating a sparkling waterfall effect. As the elongated chandelier extends down, five bronze branch-like chandelier arms reach out to support beaded disc bobeches that are hung with heavy teardrop prisms. The chandelier finishes in a flourish of draped garlands and a large, sleek globe prism. This light fixture is in excellent condition; it was originally gas but has been professionally wired for electricity and comes with all necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures 22-1/4” wide and 40-1/4” tall, and the fixture is 52-1/4” long overall.
