Antique Italian Black Wrought Iron and Green Murano Glass Chandelier

$5,201.06

About

1950s very ornate chandelier with original green Italian Murano glass and bronze ancient classical dolphin. This unique antique Italian wrought iron chandelier has an organic feel with its six scrolled arms and three beautiful bronze fish sculptures. The chandelier has a black metal finish giving the light a rustic yet elegant appearance. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close. Measures: Diameter 70 cm. Height fixture 65 cm. Total height 150 cm. The light requires six single E14 and one E27 screw fit lightbulbs (60Watt max.) LED compatible. Weight 12 kg. The Victorians and Edwardians made large numbers of sculptures of fishes. The most common single type, though, is often mistaken for a dolphin. The ancient classical dolphin, taken as a model and inspiration for countless artworks ever since, has a recognizably delphinic body, sleek and pear shaped, but a very short, flat beak compared to real dolphins. So when we see sculptures with this sort of round head and stretched mouth, it is easy to think of them as dolphin statues. But the tails are horizontal, the fins spiny rather than what should be smooth flippers to the sides, the bodies scaly, so these would seem to be intended as true fishes, not dolphins - sturgeons have been suggested.
