Baltic 18th Century Crystal and Gilded Iron Candle Chandelier
Baltic 18th century crystal and six-arm candle chandelier
with antique crystal pendaloques in form of grape clusters, flowers and leaves, hanging from arms leading from central body glass covered stem and finishing with a large pear shaped blown and cut finial.
This chandelier is something of a mystery, It is clearly very old with forged slender arms and candlesockets. It is also quite sophisticated with carefully blown and cut crystal clad stem and hanging drops. It was found in home of a descendant of a German Baltic Baron and may even be from Lithuania, Courland or that part of the world. It is very unusual and perhaps even 17th century
