This French chandelier from the 1940s was designed in the style of Maison Bagues with a bronze frame and crystals. It can be used with a dimmer. It has a strong Art Deco influence with crystals radiating on a solid bronze gilt frame. There is flow of movement from the curving arms, dangling crystals and crystal balls. There is a central column of baluster decorated with three crystal balls in the center. At the bottom of the chandelier, there is a dome-shaped bronze canopy with eight arms. Decorated between these main arms, there are eight bronze spirals finished with a crystal bead and dangling crystal. The underside of the canopy has a string of small crystal beads which allows the light above to come through. The underside of the canopy is finished with a large optical crystal ball faceted on the sides. The eight arms dramatically curve outwards and upwards. At the end of each arm, there is a faceted crystal bobeche and a bronze candle holder. They are each covered by the original antique cream celluloid candle-shaped tube. The chandelier requires eight standard small screw light bulbs E14 up to 40 Watts each. They are presently fitted with 25 Watts candle clear light bulbs, which are included. At the top of the column, there is a large decorative round loop leading to the solid brass chain. At the top of the chain, there is the original ceiling cup which has a decorative round loop attached to the chain. Inside the ceiling cup, there is an s-shaped hook to attach this chandelier to the ceiling. It is possible to lengthen or shorten the brass chain for the desired drop. The height of the frame without the chain is 60 cm.
