This triangle shaped ceiling is hand carved and comes from the Black Forest region, dated about 1870/90. The motifs are a classical, grapes and wine leaves, very fine carved.
The lamp is entirely made of wood, the hanging chain is also hand carved, the top shows a triangle shape too. The actually shades are younger and "rustically", see please the pictures. Some other will probably fit this wonderful piece better; I could imagine shades made of fine leather or parchment.
The lamp is electrified, it will be necessary to re-wire it for USA; this work is easily to do.
The condition is very good; the lime tree wood has a beautiful age patina. A tiny chip near to the bulb fitting, invisible when shade present.
Measurements: the triangle sides have a length of 14.6 inches, the lamp measures 20 inches height, without shades.
