I fell in love with this chandelier for a project - its early 1900's French; delicate and crusty all at the same time - yum! They were a pair but we only needed one. So the pair we bought, believing in their design gravitas and knowing that the one left over would go on to create another Noble Space for us somewhere. In a nutshell this story and ones like it helped birth Shop by Interior Archaeology, where we open our "vault" of curated pieces warehoused for our private design projects, along with a carefully chosen mix of new pieces to help you create your own unique, gorgeous and one-of-a-kind spaces.
Details on this Honey include; turned, carved and parcel-gilt body with scrolled metal arms set with molded glass drip pans and candle sockets, a row of glass flowers above the candle arms holding swags of glass prisms hung with drops, a spray of prisms at the top.
Dimensions: 34" Dia. 35 1/2” H
The baluster-form stem has some (3) shrinkage cracks and scattered losses to its pigment and gilding. One of the bobeches is cracked with a chip to its edge. One of the smaller "connecting" pendant strings is in two pieces. Metal arms exhibit light oxidation. Chandelier is structurally sound - condition is as to be expected with age and use.
