Seller: hansfella (907) 100%, Location: New York, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 352950562432 This is a small 3 arm chandelier. I have been buying and selling antiques and art semi-professionally for 35 years and this is the best thing I ever came across. It is gilt bronze and it a true jewel encrusted thing. In my opinion, and I could be wrong but I have been to the metropolitan museum of art 1000 times and have been always loved antiquities and bronze and have studied them from 2 feet away through the glass and that is my credential for expertise, this is a marriage of an object from the 13 th or 14 th century, probably a scepter, which is the pendant hanging at the bottom and the 3 sided piece of carved crystal in the top, and the arms made to incorporate them dating from the 16 th century. The arms and bulbashers have 27 rubies each and the elbow of the scroll of each arm there is a carved crystal face. Each side of the arm has 9 and the ring around the bulbasher has 9 which makes the 27 which made me think of the numerology thing. I am selling this as an antique not to be used anymore as an fixture, but it actually was wired when I got it. If you have questions or are interested please contact me... I am in upstate New York and can bring it to New York City for examination. The last picture is of a pair of candelabra that was sold by Mallet antiques 8 or 10 years ago... they describe them as Venetian around 1875.. . I allow that I may be wrong and this may be true but I do dispute their conclusion....I always though the one I had was a marriage of sorts with the parts being made at different times... Now the pair sold by Mallet ( who has since closed and I could not find any more info on them) definitely looks like a marriage. If you google Mallet Venetian candelabra you can find a picture you can zoom in on and It certainly looks to me that they made the base to put the arms on and also the drops do not follow with the general feel pf the piece and look like add ons as well..... what does this mean ? I still think the thing is earlier
