Period Swedish 8-Light Chandelier(59 views)
Description: Cast brass with old gilt, lead crystal with polybeeswax candle covers. This chandelier is as unusual as it is beautiful. The hand-cast and gilt metal frame is a foliate design with acorns and oak leaves on each arm. A hand-cut crystal urn-shaped pendant hangs free in the center of the fixture. Most of the crystal prisms on this chandelier are original and are in their original configuration. Originally designed as a candle-burning fixture, it has been unobtrusively French-wired for modern use. Ceiling cap, hanging hardware and chain are included. A very rare find!
