This beautiful antique gold gilt bronze medallion 3 tier wedding cake crystal chandelier once hung in an old art deco era building in New York City. The chandelier measures approximately 10 inches wide and 12 inches in length from the bottom of the crystals to the top loop of the fixture, not including the chain length. The top tier is gold gilt, pierced and embossed. The second and third tiers are also pierced and embossed with floral decoration.
The chandelier has been decorated with 130 clear 2.5 Austrian crystals. The crystals have had new brass bow tie connector pins added on. The top of the socket cluster features a stylized art deco gilt bronze medallion openwork plateau. The plateau and loop are removable -Removing the plateau and loop from the top would allow you to mount the fixture flush to the ceiling. Flush mounting hardware is not included.
The outside bottom of the socket cluster has decorative filigree work and a spire shaped finial. The chandelier has been rewired. It has two bakelite standard sized keyless sockets encased in gold metal trellis pattern sleeves.
I used 2 short halogen 100 watt decorator bulbs. This fixture can be hung by the chain and canopy from the ceiling or flush mounted to the ceiling and will operate with a wall switch or dimmer switch. When re-attaching the crystals to the frame, I recommend starting from the bottom tier and working up.I spaced the crystals evenly by eye. There are no missing crystals. Please refer to the photos close up to see how they are spaced on the frame. The matching bronze medallion ceiling canopy measures 5 1/2 inches wide and is brass.
The canopy comes with a fancy 16 inch embossed brass adjustable chain. The pictures don't do it justice! Sometimes the flash of the camera may make picture colors appear slightly different.
