An important antique Louis XV style crystal and gilt bronze chandelier of French origin, a thirteen-light pendant dating back to the very early 1900, with a very original vertical structure, a birdcage shaped frame centred topped by crystal elements and adorned with crystal pinnacles. Seven handmade scrolled arms ending with romantic crystal spires illuminated with mignon bayonet light bulbs, fully arranged with Bohemian crystal drops and leaves. Six scrolling curved arms ending with flower shaped ormolu bobeiges suitable for E14 light bulbs. See pictures taken before cleaning and new wiring. We have disassembled each piece for cleaning, one arm showed an old restoration and only tree of the upper crystal leaves, daggers are different, are not original. Very good condition since restored and rewired for Italian standards. It dates back to very early 20th century and comes from a private family of Milan. This antique chandelier is subject to Belle Arti export visa and we are going to get it in October 2018.
