A precious antique/vintage petite five light French brass chandelier for your French Country, shabby chic, Victorian or Paris flea market decor. This swag chandelier is a smaller size which makes it perfect for so many places in your home ~ the dining room, bedroom, entry way or porch/patio.
The brass has a gorgeous patina, lovely embossing, and is in excellent condition. This fixture is draped in clear faceted crystal bead strands, starting at the top prism holders to under each of the arms. It is also draped between the prism holders at the top, and again under the arms. All of the crystal prisms are aurora borealis/iridescent teardrops in two different sizes. There are a total of 71 crystal prisms on this darling chandelier. The top prism holder arms have a strand of faceted crystal beads that fall to the middle of the fixture and each strand holds a beautiful vintage French pendant crystal prism that is attached to a large glass rosette. There are large and small vintage teardrops adorning the top section of the chandelier, and large vintage teardrops under and between each of the arms. Each arm bobeche is surrounded with eight ab crystal teardrops ~ four large (not vintage), and four smaller (vintage) teardrop crystal prisms. The center bottom finial holds a strand of ab crystal beads with an aurora borealis faceted crystal ball attached.
The wiring is in excellent condition. There is approximately 18 feet with a plug and switch. There is also 3 feet of gothic brass chain. The sockets are original, but the lovely drippy candle sleeves are new.
This is total classic elegance! It measures 12" in diameter and 20" long from the loop at the top of the fixture to the bottom of the crystal ball. It uses small based chandelier bulbs, up to 75 watts each. It is heavy :-) NOTE: If you want to hardwire this, let me know and I will include a vintage brass ceiling canopy.
