Early 20th century elegant large French gilt brass and crystal 12 light chandelier with interesting provenance.
Early 20th century wonderful French large gilded cast brass chandelier in the Empire style with 12 lights and graduating waterfall garlands of crystals, forming a beautiful shape.
This chandelier has 6 interior lights (two tiers of three lights each) and 6 exterior lights mounted on cast scrolled leafy branches. The bands at the top and middle feature raised acanthus leaves, a lovely accent.
Size-approx. 27.5 inches high (measured to top band of chandelier) by 27.5 inches wide. Height measurement doesn't include any chain or the ceiling rose. Approximately 20 inches of chain is also included.
This came from the estate of Sylvaine le Desert, who was the daughter of the famed Paris journalist Jacques le Desert, and the granddaughter of Alexandre Israel, newspaper proprietor and minister. Ms. le Desert survived occupied France posing as a village girl, working the land, and joined the French resistance. She moved from Paris to Surrey where she lived for many years until her death in 2009.
With a lovely history attached, this is a fabulous chandelier to hang over a dining table, or in an important room of a home.
In very good condition, this very elegant chandelier has been fully rewired to modern UK standards.
