Pair of Italian Empire Chandeliers Early 19th Century Crystal Genoese Pendants
A pair of Italian Empire period crystal and gilt iron chandeliers, two basket circular six-light chandeliers, dating back to early 19th century of Italian origin, coming from a Genoese private palazzo, North Italy.
An exquisite light circular gilt iron structure realized with repoussé, embossed brass crows with a beautiful mercury gilding, all connected oval crystals chains, all original of the period.
THEY ARE ALMOST A PAIR since the leaves decorating the upper crown and the floral embossed patterns are slightly different, please see picture details.
The larger crown features six cast scrolling curved arms, whereas the gilt lower ring is decorated with embossed floral motifs and prism shaped crystal pendants, these crystals are new since they were missing.
These antique Italian chandeliers are in good condition, wear consistent with age and use, each suspended from a crown issuing upward leaves by original chains, ready to be hanged, with new Italian standards wiring, suitable for 6 Edison 14 light bulbs each.
These Italian masterpieces of art, born for candles lighting at the beginning of 1800, thanks to their evergreen and classical design, can be placed in contemporary luxury interiors and are perfect for an exclusive living room.
Height of 110 centimeters does not include any chain, size relative to chandelier’s structure only.
