19th Century Gasolier by F. & C. Osler


A symphony of glass and brass, this outstanding gas chandelier was crafted by F. & C. Osler, the leading makers of chandeliers in the 19th century. Designed in an elegant, classically-inspired style, this stunning five-light fixture is constructed of moulded and cut-glass in a variety of styles, including columns, fans and prismatic drops, accented by delicate brass hardware. The Birmingham firm of Osler was established by Thomas Osler in 1807, when he joined a Mr. Shakespeare's glasshouse at Hockley. His sons Follett and Clarkson renamed the firm F. & C. Osler and by 1851, they were one of Britain's leading glassmakers. The firm created a twenty-seven foot glass fountain, an eight-month undertaking, which formed the centrepiece of the entire Great Exhibition of 1851. Amongst their other displays were glass busts of celebrity figures, as well as a pair of eight-foot candelabra, now at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, which Queen Victoria presented to Prince Albert in 1849. The gasolier is stamped with a Patent Office Design Registry mark for 20th March 1879, registered design number 333560, and has been converted for electricity. circa 1879 Measures: 49 1/2" high.
