Circa 1870. Large French wrought iron chandelier. Eight elegant arms in the best tradition of hand-wrought 19th century lighting. Oversized but not heavy, each graceful arm has leaves and curlicues radiating from a two part round center. Both the top and bottom of the round central body also feature a cluster of leaves and flowers. Very good original condition, original chain and canopy, old black paint finish, that is well worn in a "shabby chic" traditional manner. Originally candle, this chandelier has been freshly wired for electricity. 40 " long x 36" diameter.
