About

Splendid 1940's Italian brass chandelier having 12 arms which overflow out of a central brass bowl as if splashing out of a fountain. Elongated domed-bottom tubular socket cups. A spring of coiled brass rod embellished the drop pole. Two Edison bulb sockets within the bowl for uplighting. Very high quality artisanal construction like that of Stilnovo or Arredoluce. Newly rewired.
