French Early 20th Century Bronze and Crystal Chandelier

Item Number: 641x

This beautiful early 20th century French chandelier features both fantastic crystal work and a delicately ornate crown. The crown features a grape motif, alluding to Bacchus the god of wine. Its bronze glimmers in the light from 3 intertwining interior bulbs. Beads of crystal, octagonally cut pieces first, then pointed tear drops hang below. Three concentric rings follow in this pattern giving the chandelier four crystal tears and ultimately a beautiful sense of movement in a classic style.
