Gorgeous antique two-light Neoclassical chandelier with original hand cut iridescent glass shades, salvaged out of New York and dating from 1910. This silver plated chandelier has a decorative canopy with gadrooning, volutes, and foliate details. Two chains extend down from either side and support the arms of a lower body center piece. This disc-like body has anthemions, foliage, and guilloche trim with a hanging tassel finial. The body extends out in two chandelier arms with bellflower and volute details, each supporting its own downward facing shade. The fitters have gadrooned details and hold original iridescent glass shades. These shades feature amazing hand cut floral and vine details and a gracefully scalloped edge. This chandelier is in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass, just the expected fleabites around the edges. The fixture measures 15-1/4" wide, 11" tall, and 24-3/4" long overall.
