A Crystal Fruit Chandelier
A wonderfully elegant and quirky 19th century French eight light crystal and bronze ‘cage’ chandelier decorated with clear cut crystal ‘rosettes’ and drops, and also with coloured crystal fruit (apples and pears with leaves) in shades of aubergine-tinted and green crystal. Note the excellent proportions, and the good bronze patina. Area of Paris, circa 1880.
Apologies for the poor quality photos. Better ones will be taken on the arrival of this chandelier in Melbourne.
