An opulent antique Scandinavian crystal chandelier, circa 1900. Please notice the graceful sweep of the gilded cage that supports a myriad of crystal beads draped in swags as well as large crystal prisms in three different colours including clear, amethyst and smoke. The addition of a row of small crystal beads along the arms adds an unexpected bit of sparkle. Each of the chandelier arms is finished with a cut-glass bobeche that was originally designed to provide a receptacle for melted candle wax. This beautiful Gustavian style fixture has been cleaned, polished and rewired and is ready to be installed by a qualified electrician. Antique Swedish chandeliers like this example were used in elegant homes where the candle flames were enhanced by the reflective crystals.
