About

The gilt-bronze and cut-glass six-light chandelier is of typical cage form with three tiers. The corona cast with upswept stylised palmettes above a circular faceted glass-plateau, the main corona headed by finely chased cast bronze feathers alternating with foliate-cast branches with circular drip-pans, each joined by chains and hung with further pendants.

This very elegant chandelier is of exceptional quality and distinguishes itself by the original cut-glass and fire gilding.
