This four-light suspended argand dazzles with its beautiful two-tone gilt-lacquered finish. Four substantial cast link and ring chains are suspended from an elaborate canopy decorated with roses. The tall font is embellished with floral and foliate castings. Between the arms, the brackets holding the chains are adorned with cat-tails. The bowl of the chandelier is set off with multiple cast foliate designs and the finial on the bottom is composed of cast seashells.
