Antique, Circa 1900, French Gilded Brass & Crystal 6-Light Chandelier. This is one of the most stunning French Chandeliers we have seen! From top to bottom, loaded with hand-cut crystal pendalogues, faceted beaded chain, Rosettes, Crystal Spears, Stars and crystal Flowers. The center of the fixture is comprised of crystal columns (one has a small chip that cannot be seen unless up close).
This gorgeous chandelier is in perfect working order, with new sockets and creme color, heavy paper candle covers. The wiring is solid and the center wire has been replaced with the same style wire as the original. The gilding is well worn in many areas, likely from cleaning and age (see last photo). It has not been polished, but could be if one wanted a bright luster.
Whether lit or unlit, this chandelier is extremely pleasing to the eye.
A few links of chain and the canopy have been replaced, but compliment the original look of the chandelier very well. More photos available upon request.
Measures 45"L overall, 32-1/2"L without chain and canopy, and about 22"W
