Grand French 19th Century Empire Bronze d’Ore and Crystal Chandelier

This classic Empire style bronze d'ore chandelier is draped with ropes of octagon cut crystals and dates back to the 19th century.  The French antique piece offers 18 lights and a crown of reticulated acanthus leaves which sport gorgeous oval cut crystals. The ropes of octagon crystals lead us to the two larger rings below, the first of which holds its lights upon  palmette flowers, the second of which features gorgeous bronze d’ore winged allegorical figures below the bronze d’ore candle cups and bobeches. At bottom a bowl shaped collection of octagon cut crystals brings us to a bronze d’ore ring set with large pear-shaped cut crystal teardrops in the lapidary fashion. Uniquely, the chandelier is similar in design to the three large chandeliers that hang in the East Room of the White House.
