Alovely French antique chandelier in the style of Napoleon 111 dating around 1860 . This chandelier was originally made for candles and then later (we think) converted to gas, it retains the gas taps and the really pretty embossed candle carriers , the gilded brass frame is decorated with embossed flowers and the 10 arms terminate in a pleated brass receiver bowl with a pointed ferrule and large glass sphere at the base , Strung with octagons and  icicles and with a rather special canopy at the top , this chandelier is opulent and  would look  its best hung slightly lower over a dining table or in an entrance hall  . These types of chandelier are hard to find now in true original condition , this one has been through many incarnations and is now wired for electricity in our workshops .
