32 x 21 in diameter

Location: Baton Rouge


Hand-crafted from solid brass and bronze, this stunning chandelier is a definitive example of First Empire style and Second Empire quality! The brass bell at the bottom has been finished in a very dark green as was the custom, which contrasted with the brightness of the bronze dore arms, bands and ormolu mounts. A superbly detailed crown supports the chain that connects to the main body, and more chain comes with it for higher ceiling installations. Originally intended for candles, it has been converted to electric lighting to UL Standards by our expert in-house staff.
Circa 1870.
Measures 32 x 21 in diameter; plus 22" of chain.
