Louis XV Bronze & Rock Crystal Chandelier

French 19th century Louis XV bronze d'ore & rock crystal 40 light chandelier.

This magnificent rock crystal and bronze d’ore chandelier comes from the Paris residence of the Baron James-Mayer de Rothschild, the legendary l’Hotel Talleyrand. At what was probably the most exquisite “hotel particulier” in Paris, the Rothschilds’ entertained lavishly.

Historically, when the building was purchased by the U. S. government after World War II, l’Hotel Talleyrand became the site of the administration of the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe. The building continues to host international, political, and cultural events bearing witness to this opulent lifestyle today

The value of rock crystal is determined by its weight, clarity, and size, a trifecta in which this chandelier excels. Please note specifically the large carved pieces of rock crystal in the middle, and the ball at the bottom.
