Pair of clear cut and etched glass 6-light chandeliers
Continental, 20th Century
Height 68cm, diameter 51cm
Expertly crafted from cut and etched glass, the chandelier’s design showcases opulence and luxury, motifs popular during the French Belle Époque period.
The central stem is decorated with cut-glass features, each one of a different design. Around its circumference at numerous points hangs a large collection of cut-glass droplets. Six elegant arms extend from the lower part of the chandeliers. These terminate with transparent glass hurricane shades with gently flared and wavy rims. A plethora of refined flowing foliate motifs is etched onto each shade, adding further subtle yet impressive details. A flower shaped cut glass piece is mounted under the shades. A similar glass piece hangs from the base of both chandeliers finished with an individual slender glass droplet.
This pair of charming chandeliers would superbly illuminate both contemporary and traditional interior spaces, in particular ones with limited space.
