Enormous Two Tier Iron Chandelier, France circa 1920


(82" diam x 73" high) A striking two tier iron chandelier from France c.1920. The elegant and modern design of this enormous antique French iron chandelier from the early twentieth century is truly remarkable. The upper circular disk of solid iron is suspended from three chains that meet at the top while the lower circular disk is also of solid iron but of a smaller circumference. The beauty lies in the relationship between the scale of the two disks and the manner in which they are suspended in space by the handsome iron chain. The three chains at the top are joined by a circular hand forged iron canopy of open work iron that provides a visual balance to the lower sections. The larger disk has twelve candle arms while the lower disk has six candle arms. All of the arms have a simple shallow dish modeled after chandeliers that had a large cup designed to capture dripping wax from burning candles known as bobeches. Each arm has the form of a taper with the bottom of each arm ending in a sphere. The hand forged texture is visible in the surface of the iron over the entire chandelier. These eighteen arms will each take a forty watt chandelier bulb enabling this fixture to give off an amazing amount of light as well as being able to be controlled by a rheostat to dim the wattage. The entire fixture has been rewired for American electricity and is ready to be installed by a qualified electrician. Although the size of this chandelier is on the grand side the airy and open design of the overall fixture ensures it will make a dramatic impact in a contemporary or traditional space.
