Description

Circa 1930 French Empire Style Bronze Brass and Alabaster Chandelier. The hand cut funnel shaped alabaster shades diffuse the light giving it a soft lava glow when lit. The type of lights used transforms the glow from a soft amber to fiery orange hues. Having lots of natural veins makes each shade one of a kind. The brass and bronze have exquisite castings of medallions and laurels topped with a majestic tiara on the crown and ending with an acorn finial at the bottom. It would make an elegant and traditional statement in any modern setting by bringing a delight to the eye in an entry, dining room or bedroom.

There are scratches due to its age. There are some deep veins on the shades which are natural due to their mineral composition and may be confused for cracks. However, all alabaster shades are intact and there are no cracks or repairs. Since the metals are not gilt, patina has formed on the metal that is normal for its age and gives it a more antique look. Two of the three decorative rods decorating the frame had been cracked and have been repaired. One brass rod has a small blow hole from the casting process. It has other nicks and scratches normal for its age.
