Sweet! Vintage/antique five light brass candelabra/table chandelier, loaded with vintage and antique crystal prisms...
The brass is ornately embossed and has a lovely patina. Starting with the top candle bobeche, faceted crystal beads are draped from four of the bobeche "petals" to each of the four light arms. There are more faceted crystal beads draped between each of the light arms. Pretty vintage French pendants are attached at the top bobeche, each prism holder between the light arms, and again under each of the arms. The four light arms are surrounded with eight vintage/antique basket weave patterned crystal teardrop prisms, all attached to lead crystal octagon prisms (alternating between 2 and 3 strands each). The prism holder arms also hold a clear pendant prism, close to the main column. Finally, there is an antique "plug" style prism attached at the center of each crystal strand that is draped between the arms. That is a total of 52 fabulous vintage/antique crystal prisms on this little gem.
The electrical is is excellent condition, albeit a little stiff. The sockets and candle sleeves are newly replaced. This candelabra uses small~based bulbs, up to 60 watts each.
Measures 15" tall and 10" in diameter.
