French Art Deco Alabaster and Nickeled Bronze Chandelier, Subes

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Important and highly unusual French Art Deco alabaster chandelier attributed to Raymond Subes with original nickeled bronze mounts, stem and canopy. The large central hand-carved tortoise shell colored alabaster bowl is unusually thick. It supports four heavy fluted nickeled bronze mounts each topped by double fluted stepped bobeches. When viewed from underneath, the spear shaped mounts powerfully slice through the soft curves of the alabaster coupe creating a visual dichotomy. The central round stem with angular faceted step ends in a matching fluted cap ceiling mount.
Newly wired for American specifications.
Holds 16 sockets total (ten exterior, six interior)
Can be lengthened or shortened for a surcharge.
