Neo-Classic 20th Century Chandelier
Debbie Asks: What can you tell me about my chandelier?
AW says: This is an early to mid 2oth century chandelier, made of brass. We can discern this by the cut of the candle cup, and the ornamentation on the arms.
The cut of the cup (the area where the prisms are affixed) is precise. The ornamental curl that half way to each arm is refined and elegant but strong. These two features among other tell-tale signs indicate a chandelier made of solid brass rather than a pot metal which many inferior fixtures from this period are made from.
