Simple and Elegant 4-Light Empire Chandelier C1905 Item # R2679
Like the branches of a willow tree, the arms of this unusual turn of the century shower chandelier have an elegant and weightless quality. Adding to that delicacy are the fine filigree appliques on each arm and the opalescent shades dangling from 28" chains. These details are the best hint we have toward typical Empire lighting, which usually overwhelms the viewer with ornamentation. Of particular note are the gorgeous etched and iridized shades, which are most likely Steuben verre de soie ("glass of silk"), though they are unmarked
The canopy is very small; only 4" in diameter, so we would recommend complimenting this light with an ornamental plaster ceiling medallion in order to cover a standard junction box, and further highlight the fixture.
- Historical Style: Victorian: Empire
- Notes: the 4" canopy will not cover a standard junction box
