Gilt-Bronze and Crystal Chandelier in the Neoclassical Taste

second quarter 20th century, the twelve-light chandelier with a standard decorated with a pagoda roof and temple bells, with scrolled candle arms terminating in lion's heads and figures of Victory supporting the candle cups, the anthemion-molded corona supporting strands of crystal drops, and swags of drops hung between the arms.
h. 40", dia. 30"


The chandelier needs wiring, and is lacking one pendant strand and one prism. Bobeches have extra holes, which may have originally held more prisms than they currently have. Scattered surface scratches and losses/wear to gilding are scattered throughout - notably to the maiden figures. Two of the plastic sleeves have small losses. In overall good condition.
