Rare Midcentury Chandelier / Pendant with Golden Bronze Glass Peacock Sculptures

$3,923.67

About

A eight light chandelier with eight etched or frosted glass shades, each embossed with a peacock motif. The cast metal bird's bodies and sculptured center column are heavy weight cast metal with an original lacquered brass finish. Sculptural and highly decorative light fixture. The peacock has, since ancient times, been regarded as an animal with many positive and even healing characteristics. And that has inspired many artist and designers through all times and up until today. Looking at the past circa hundred years the peacock was first integrated in the Art Nouveau style. The growing back of feathers falling out in that period was associated with 'rebirth' and 'the eternal circle of life'. In the Art Deco period that followed it was the colorfulness and the symmetry of the peacocks feathers that was often depicted in a more stylized way. In this day and age, the peacock obviously still has those qualities (and many more), but now the focus would be more on spiritual enlightenment in the sense of people showing their 'true colors' and being empowered by getting to the core of who they are. Each individual may attribute different qualities to a symbol such as the peacock in this wonderful work of lighting art. However, the fact that works of art like this bring beauty, lightness and even comfort in our daily lifes is for all people, is of all times and is part of all cultures on our beautiful planet. The artist who made this stunning light fixture has depicted eight peacocks in their most elegant of poses and the combination of the golden colored bronze bodies and the sculptural glass feather shades is an absolute joy to own and look at. This rare work of lighting art too will bring light into your life and in more than one way. If you are looking for the perfect lighting solution to one of your rooms then this small size, elegant, great quality and meaningful chandelier from circa 1960-1970 could be perfect for you. It comes with the finest details and it is in excellent condition. Measures: Diameter 81 cm. Height fixture 30 cm. Height including the chain 100 cm. Weight 12 kg.
