This Chandelier is HUGE. 30" at it's widest, almost 20" tall and weighs almost 40 lbs.
The gold in the slag just shimmers when lit. I really don't understand how the gas works used to go inside......but it is also very heavy and the same solid brass as the rest of the light. In picture 2 you can see how heavy the brass work is and beautifully designed.
The gas part stands 12" high. I've had this for about 18 years now. Can't get any info on it. There is no visible signature, but an appraiser told me once that when they converted it, and had to put that wide band on the inside to support the electric lights, they may have covered the signature. Very high quality piece. I'm going to add another item (same chandelier) and add more photos. Any help would be appreciated.
