Item # 8475
A magnificent French 19th century Neo-Classical st. ormolu, patinated bronze and etched frosted glass chandelier. The six arm nine light light chandelier is centered by a richly chased bottom ormolu acorn finial with fine palmettes and foliate patterns. The elegant frosted glass dome houses lighting which offer a warm glow and highlights the charming rich floral etched designs. The central tier is decorated with richly chased detailed floral ormolu mounts on a patinated bronze background, tied berried laurel wreaths and striking arms with a bird's head design and foliate candle cups, in a satin and burnished finish. At the center is a light encased by frosted glass in the shape of the eternal flame. Leading up three ormolu chains with diamond shaped links is the original circular canopy.
