Overview

A very fine antique Gustavian or Swedish Empire crystal chandelier with brass armature featuring a center ring with thinly pressed rosettes and foliage on brass appliqué between the six candle holders. The diminishing brass rings which appear to float in various layers from top to bottom are adorned with crystal prisms giving this chandelier a light and airy appearance. This lovely chandelier features a total of 10 lights that are strategically placed to create a beautiful glow from within and without. Candelabras are newly electrified with wax candle sleeves and can provide 250 watts of light.
A wonderful focal point in an entrance, library, living room or dining area!
