Lavish Vintage French 8 Light Swagged Crystal and Bronze Chandelier

Lavish Vintage French 8 Light Swagged Crystal and Bronze Chandelier. An absolutely exquisite vintage regency style chandelier in beautifully embossed bronze enhanced with hundreds of shimmering crystal drops. It has a heavy bronze ceiling rose embossed with swirling plumage and a lovely brass chain below.

At the top of the chandelier is an embossed bronze crown of eight arched spurs with large (2.5 cm wide) octagonal crystal swags between them and a pair of marguerite daisy and snowflake drops attached to the end of each one. Beneath this, from a circular embossed plate extend a further eight long garlands of crystals. These split off into two at arm height and attach to the candle cups and have daisy and large multi faceted almond shaped drops set where the garland divides in two. In the middle of the swags sits the long and slender central column of the chandelier and this is formed by two shapely reeded cut glass balusters. The eight curlicued bronze arms of the chandelier extend from the centre base.

Each one is delicately embossed along the length and has a further three pairs of sparkling crystal drops suspended beneath them. Intricately embossed bronze plates at the end of the arms have deeply scalloped cut glass dishes sitting on them and these are all joined by another deep swag of octagonal drops with a further large snowflake crystal at the front. On the base of the chandelier is a shapely glass bowl. Below this, from a bronze plate that matches those seen on the arms, extend yet more lavish garlands of large octagonal crystal drops. A large glass globe set in the centre completes this sumptuous light.

I hope you can see from the pictures that this chandelier has been made with great attention to detail and that the crystals are extremely good quality, and that either unlit or with the stunning reflective glow of the lights when on, this is a sublimely opulent vintage piece. It is in excellent vintage condition and i t uses eight small base candle bulbs (not supplied) and is wired and fully functional, however as with all vintage lighting it should be checked and installed by a qualified person. A striking light, with beautiful workmanship and luscious detailing that would be a fabulous centrepiece to any interior. This substantial light is perfectly proportioned at 102 cm long x 62 cm wide and weighs 9 kg, it could be shortened by removing some of the chain links.
