English cut crystal antique chandelier
An English crystal antique chandelier converted from a 19th century gasolier . We don't see these items much these days , the glass is very beautiful and the proportions just right for an English country house entrance hall or lobby . Perfectly cut waisted alberts for 4 tiers below a tent of cut glass stringing , the whole terminating in a cut glass faceted ball at the base . We have wired this in our own workshops, with 4 internal bulbs at the gas outlet points . We date this item around 1870. It simple elegant, understated and beautiful .
