This antique chandelier has been wired for electric lights, but may originally have been a hose-supplied gas fixture. Evidence of pipe fittings inside the fixture suggest this possibility. The chandelier is silver plated, but the silver is worn away in places and shows its age. The remaining patinated look is a fantastic shabby chic or antique farmhouse style that would look great in either setting, and lends an authentic 19th century fixture to a quality interior design.
The chandelier includes a good solid brass or bronze body and arms, a spectacular 'heart' split hanging loop with it's lock ring still intact! There are two canopies, one modern replacement and an original canopy from the turn of the century or earlier. The wiring is from the 1980's or newer and is in good condition. A new top wire and ground have been added. There is no chain or hanging bracket with the fixture, both easy to get. The candle covers will need to be replaced as several are split down their sides.
This fantastic, authentic antique chandelier needs a new home!
