Louis XIV Style Solid Bronze Doré Chandelier, By Repute Juilliard School, New York
Louis XIV Style Solid Bronze Doré Twelve Light Chandelier, By Repute Juilliard School, New York c.1920. The brilliant reflective quality of the gold finish complements the balanced and symmetrical arrangement of the twelve scrolled arms and the decorative feature of the four cherub heads placed at the top of the chandelier. The upper tier has four arms while the lower tier has eight arms each electrified for modern bulbs. This chandelier contains a combination of superbly cast details as well as elegantly designed and executed etched decoration that capture and reflect light when it plays across the surface. Because the fixture was created to be seen suspended in the center of an interior the emphasis on balance and symmetry was of paramount concern. The base of the chandelier features a pineapple finial that represented great wealth as they could only be acquired at great cost since they had to be imported during the eighteenth century. The bold casting of the pineapple on the lowest section of the fixture balances the scale of the four heads at the top and the entire chandelier hangs from a trefoil ring place at the very top. The thickness of the ring is in scale with the overall fixture as are the details that give it a sculptural appeal. This chandelier retains its reputation as having been made especially for the Juilliard School of Music in New York City before it was deaccessioned upon the renovation of the space.
