Stunning Gilt Rococo Early Electric 7-Light Chandelier Item # R8783

Circa 1903


When Pompeii and Herculaneum were discovered, the Classical Revival was born in Europe. When the United States declared independence and set up a Greek-style Democracy, the Classical Revival was born in America. The endless refined appeal of Classical design stretches across the 19th and 20th centuries, and encompasses variations like Beaux Arts, Neo-Classical, Rococo and Greek Revival. Design elements like coves and ogees are borrowed from ancient architecture, and ornaments are predominated by acanthus leaf, Greek key, egg and dart, and wave motifs. While most Classical Revival lighting was at home in municipal and public buildings, these impressive fixtures make great focal points for today’s homes of any style.

  • Historical Style: Classical Revival
  • Incredibly beautiful early electric Rococo chandelier w/ fantastic detail in the solid brass castings. The perfect example of late Victorian motifs adapting to the emerging technology of electric lighting – perhaps distributed by Beardslee, as per this 1903 catalog page.
  • Acanthus leaf and bead motifs, hallmark elements of this stylistic period.
  • As it would have been ornamented originally, complete with sparkling hand-made Czech crystal beaded bulb covers, which were made for us by an artisan who makes them the same way they were made 100 years ago.
  • Condition Notes: Wonderful patina on the original fire-gilt brass finish.
  • Bulbs not included.
