It's hard not to get "roped in" by this eclectic and evocative late-Victorian bent brass chandelier. The rope tubing motif, which was popular during the late 1800s, is enthusiastically embraced here with wonderfully twisting arms enhanced by scrolling flourishes. The delicately stencil-etched gas shades pair beautifully with crystal-draped embossed center ring. Note the deeply cut and shallow-angled treatment of the main rope pipe - this high-quality execution is typical of original fixtures and totally lost in new rope tubing today.

Finish: New Matte Antique with hand-rubbed highlights.

Notes: The shade holders are new and the crystals are antique replacements.
