Beautiful flowers are the recurring motifs in the decoration of this wonderful antique chandelier, dating from the years around 1840. The most impressive features of the piece are the intricately-painted floral bouquets which adorn the opaline glass base of the chandelier, and which, when illuminated, will add vitality and vivid colour to a room.
The opaline glass bowl at the base of the piece has eight scrolling gilt bronze lights issuing from it, each of which is finely-cast with further floral motifs. The whole piece is supported by four ormolu chains, which join just below the ceiling fitment. The top plate which joins the chains features a crown-like ormolu gallery, decorated with masks.
