4-Lt Suspended Argand

England or Ireland
Circa 1835

Offered in a stunning two tone gilt lacquered finish, this beautiful four-light argand chandelier distinguishes itself by its unique design features. The canopy is composed of two tiers of cast stylized leaves and the large chain links are formed from vine patterns joined by rosettes. Leaves and flowers are used to form the frame for the bowl while the arms are designed using scrolls terminating in leaves and flowers. Concealing the large cylindrical font is an elaborate cover composed of frosted glass and foliate scrolls. A large cut glass bowl can be seen under the bronze rim centering a large cast finial. Four frosted and cut glass period shades rest on cast shade holders.
