Condition

This chandelier has been rewired to meet US electrical standards and takes 10 base light bulbs. Each light bulb can use up to a max of 60 watts. We recommend using LED lights because they help preserve antique fixtures longer. Antique fixtures must be adapted to modern homes. This fixture requires a canopy and chain that are not included in order to hang from the ceiling. Please check with your electrician or contractor for additional specifics on installing antique lighting. None of the crystals are missing. There are five chips on four tips of the petals of the crystal flowers that are slightly chipped but not readily noticeable (see images). All the pieces to this chandelier are original. All the bronze moldings are complete and none have had repairs. The chandelier has slight light scratches and a rich patina due to its antiqueness. Overall in good condition. We will be happy to provide more close-up images upon request.
