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 maximum 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 is not included to hang from the ceiling. Please check with your electrician or contractor for additional specifics on installing antique lighting. All the crystals are complete, none are missing, broken, or chipped. All the pieces to this chandelier are original. The main body is bronze, but the minor parts, such as the extensions for the rosette accents are brass. These bronze and brass parts are complete and have no repairs. There is some soldering on the holes where the electrical wire was threaded. The candle sleeves are hand-carved wood and have a lovely, aged look. Two of the candle sleeves do not slip all the way down and you see a sliver of the socket if looking at it closeup and at eye level. This is not noticeable once it is hanging. For those wanting a newer look, the candle sleeves can be replaced by new ones. Overall, in good condition.
