French Neoclassical Style Gilt Bronze and Ruby Glass Chandelier
This is a really unusual chandelier, even the supporting chains are set with facetted crystals. They support a gilt bronze circular band crisply pierced with masks and acanthus and supporting six candle holders and six crystal spires. Suspended below are a mass of delicate pendant drops in a criss-cross pattern. The central stem is clad with a ruby glass gourd-shaped sleeve. The overall sense of this fixture is lapidary. (.jewel-like), fine, precise. Although not large, it has a really striking presence. Unusually it has an ormolu crown set too with a ruby panel.
