Italian 18 Arm Antique Crystal Chandelier
Circa 1890, this classically styled antique crystal chandelier includes many features typical of Italian craftsmanship. The iron frame is gold leafed, providing a rich base for the lovely glass elements. Glass beading along the arms and frame accentuates the multiple swags of these same beads. Delicate glass bobeche create transparent bases for the 18 candle lights. The teardrop prisms cut into an unusual shape offer a different look to this antique light fixture. Crystal chandeliers add a reflective element, which increases the perceived light in a space. Their sparkly nature is highlighted both in the daytime from natural light, and in the evening when the lights are turned on. In today’s home, chandeliers are not just for the entryway or dining room. We see them being used to add an elegant flair to kitchens, bathrooms, great rooms and even laundry rooms. Antique crystal chandeliers are truly jewelry for your home! Click here to read more about how we prepare antique lighting for use today.
