Antique French Chandelier in the Rococo Style, of Gilt Bronze and Cut-Glass


This stunning antique French chandelier comprises two tiers, featuring a total of twenty four lights. The central body is of a gilt bronze (ormolu) structure, and issues swirling arms decorated in the typical Rococo fashion. The chandelier is decorated throughout with hanging droplets of fine cut-glass, which provide a beautiful contrast against the surrounding golden gilt bronze. This antique chandelier is a truly impressive work, and its elegant Rococo style would make a fine addition to any luxurious interior. Originating in France, the Rococo style reached its peak popularity in the early 18th century and quickly infiltrated the decorative arts across Europe. Rococo design is characterized by its elaborate carved forms, ornate curves and floral motifs. The acanthus leaf is one of the basic motifs of Rococo design, and is rendered in a highly stylized rather than naturalistic fashion. Often Rococo design is asymmetric in style, meaning that one side of pattern does not mirror the other.
