French Bronze and Crystal Chandelier
second quarter 20th century, of neoclassical inspiration, the main basket-form body set with strings of glass drops, the laurel-molded central ring set with three scrolled arms set with leaf-molded bronze shade holders and floriform frosted glass shades.
h. 26", dia. 20"
**Metal elements exhibit some oxidation and wear to gilding. One string of glass beads on basket is lacking. Two shades are near matching (one is a newer replacement) that is slightly whiter, shorter and thicker; the third is a similar period shade but taller and has more elongated petals. The two older shades are each lacking a petal, and a tip to another, and have some chip(s) to their fitter rims. Condition is commensurate with age and material.
