Description

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..." Had Elizabeth Barrett Browning still been around in the early 1890s, she might have pined over this sweetest of simple pendants as we have. Proving that one doesn't have to be hit over the head with a gilded and filigreed hammer to find beauty and elegance in a light, this distinctive pendant by the W.C. Vosburgh Manufacturing Company of Chicago derives its charm from the personality of its organic looping, the subtlety of its corrugated breaks, and the dainty flourish of its decorative wire wrap. The mottled or oxidized copper finish is original, and the scalloped antique twist opalescent shade completes the glory.

Interestingly, a look at the Vosburgh catalog page that features this pendant (from Chris and Cindy Allen's second volume of "Antique Lighting of the Nineteenth Century") shows that it was in remarkably good, and similar, company.
