Large Vintage French Gilded Iron Tôle Flower Chandelier, circa 1940

About

A fabulous vintage French tôle chandelier of gilded iron in the form of a lavish bouquet of lilies and leaves and stems from France circa 1940 with ten lights. This gorgeous chandelier is modeled after the famous fixtures created of painted metal known as "tôle" in France that have been popular since the eighteenth century. Each of the beautiful blossoms showcase lilies in full bloom with their petals in full flowering along with their pistils and stamens as though they were living flowers. The flowers are arranged around the entire circumference of the chandelier in an asymmetrical manner as though they were a freshly arranged bunch of gathered flowers. This simulation of life continues as the flowers are gathered at the base by a series of ribbon twist twine wrapped around the entire bouquet. The central stem of the fixture is obscured by the flowers and they hide the ten curved arms that support the lights. Each arm curves away from the centre and has a circular bobeche that is topped with an arrangement of leaves that hide the candle stem. The profusion of blossoms allows the lights to appear to float within the flowers and create an impression of shadow and light that is amazingly realistic. The fixture has been rewired for American electricity and is ready to be installed by a qualified electrician. The mellow color of the gilded finish is beautifully reflective and will cast a lovely glow when illuminated with a soft and gentle light to heighten the beauty and romantic quality of the flowers.
