Late Sheffield Colonial Revival Bent-Brass Chandelier, c1920 Item # R1574
It's the details that really matter when distinguishing true Colonial Revival lighting from cheap knock-offs. Notice the attention that's been paid to the molded tassel, for example – it's slightly asymmetrical for a more realistic appearance. Note, too, the arms: they are of a style called "bent brass." One of the great contributions American designers brought to lighting, bending brass tubes rather than hammering out wrought iron, allowed them to create fixtures that were both large and light. Bent-brass fixtures can be seen in Orville and Wilbur Wright's print and bicycle shop, for example. Both versatile and decorative, this one-of-a-kind chandelier could prove quite a conversation piece…
- Notes: Some small dents are present on the body of the fixture but are not distracting when illuminated
- Historical Style: Colonial Revival
