A Brass Twelve Light Chandelier

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very heavily cast and substantial brass chandelier with two tiers and twelve lights in a Dutch formation, similar to pieces made by E. F. Caldwell.



Author Stephen H. Van Dyk had this to say of Caldwell:



"Edward F. Caldwell & Co., of New York City, was the premier designer and manufacturer of electric light fixtures and decorative metalwork from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries. Founded in 1895 by Edward F. Caldwell (1851-1914) and Victor F. von Lossberg (1853-1942), the firm’s legacy of highly crafted creations includes custom made metal gates, lanterns, chandeliers, ceiling and wall fixtures, floor and table lamps, and other decorative objects that can be found today in many metropolitan area churches, public buildings, offices, clubs, and residences. A majority of these buildings were built in the early 20th century, a time of tremendous growth in construction and when many cities were being electrified for the first time."
