    Here we have one of my favorite little Chandelier in Art Nouveau stile .
    A 4 facades, each with a connection for a lamp. of solid Bronze of a thickness of 2.5 mm. Very decorative for its olive leaves on 4 pages. I was always struck by his sobriety and elegance. I bought it on in Italy many years ago in a large market that in my city (Turin) called "Balun" held for many years. It is now part of my memories, but I'm happy to share it with anyone who loves this kind of thing.
    Thank you.

      Very nice! The use of laurel leaves and branches was typical in Viennese Secessionist design and Italian Stile Liberty, so the latter certainly fits with where you purchased this lighting fixture. It looks like there may have been shades on all four sides and not just exposed bulbs, but the latter is also a possibility. I have seen fixtures from this period with exposed bulbs because of the fascination with electricity...which was quite high in early 20th century Italy.
