Vintage French Brass Art Deco Neo-Classic 5 Light Torchere Serpent Chandelier. An absolutely superb vintage chandelier with striking neo classical features in beautifully aged brass and with five flame torch shades. It has a lightly tiered circular brass ceiling rose and a long central stem below, around which is coiled a beautifully engraved bronze serpent. Five slender brass supports extend from the base of the chandelier to the circular frame comprising two rings of engraved brass with five pairs of embossed bronze crests embellishing them.The torchere styled light holders stand proud between the crests and are complete with opaque glass flame shades. The conical base of the light has a long rodded finial in the centre to complete the chandelier. A I hope you can see from the pictures this chandelier is a stunning period piece with outstanding design features that really would be a unique and eye catching addition to any interior. It is in very good vintage condition, the brass and bronze having a good aged patina with a little verdigris. The torcheres show some signs of age and use commensurate with age and one of the base caps has been replaced at some point, the replacement shades are all in perfect condition.
It could be polished to a high shine if you wished, but I leave this as a matter for the new owner. It uses five bayonet base candle bulbs (not supplied) and is wired and fully functional, however as with all vintage lighting it should be checked and installed by a qualified person. A substantial and striking light, with beautiful workmanship and attention to detail.I endeavour to list all my items as accurately as possible, using the pictures as part of the description, please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information and I will do my best to help. Wherever possible I will re-use and re-cycle packaging. Txzj pxzj12227 txzj-11 txzj56 txzj73 txzj85 txzj115.
