19th Century German Lusterweibchen Carved Walnut Polychrome Six-Light Chandelier

About

This interesting chandelier is a true statement piece for a wine cellar or bar area. Created in Germany, circa 1870, the standout chandelier has six arms and features a carved bust of a woman holding a shield in one hand and a torch in the other. There are wonderful, realistic carving details throughout the lady's outfit, hat, face and hair. This chandelier is in excellent condition with new wiring and has the original hand painted and polychrome finish. A Lusterweibchen or Leuchterweibchen (German, loosely translated: "Little Chandelier Woman") is a chandelier consisting of antlers or iron arms arranged horizontally with a female half-figure placed at one end. (Antlers used were typically those of deer or elk). Included: A canopy, loop, and chain; each color-matched to the fixture. Measures: 30" W x 21" D x 24" H.
