Mid 20th century Large Italian Maria Theresa 24 Light Chandelier
A large Italian Maria Theresa style cut-glass twentyfour-light chandelier dating back to 1950 circa. This lovely extra large chandelier (or hanging fixture) of crystal, glass and gilt metal featuring 16 serpentine arms – the arms alternating between one light and two lights to each arm, each candle light with dangling pendants and decorative bobeche.
24 lights arranged in two orders of tiers and an extra bulb in the center of the structure. Very fully arranged with crystal strips, rosettes and fully dressed with crystal chains and drops.
Perfect condition, it comes from a private house in Milan and it perfectly works. This two-tier version of the Maria Theresa chandelier is decorated with various hand-cut glasses that capture and reflect the light of 24 candle bulbs resting in floral shaped bobeches.
Wiring as per Italian standard (24 E14 bulbs + 1 E27 central bulb) total weight 30 kgs.
