French 19th Century Napoleon III Bronze d’Ore and Crystal Chandelier

This classic Napoleon III chandelier features a plethora of fine crystal draped from glimmering bronze d’ore. The French antique piece dates back to the 19th century. Beginning at top, we see a crown of acanthus leaves hung with ropes of octagon crystal above crystal plaquettes. The 20 light piece extends downward to meet a flame lit center. Swirling arms reach outwards to end in bronze d’ore drippers, candle cups, and richly detailed bobeches with crystal teardrops. Further ropes of octagon crystal are hung alongside large diamond and pear shaped plaquettes. Finally, the piece ends in a large hollow crystal finial at bottom. The clarity and quality of the crystal is beautifully intensified by the glimmer of the golden bronze producing a magnificent fixture.
