(On Hold) Antique Swedish Neoclassical Six Arm Rock Crystal Chandelier Amethyst Pendants Scandinavia circa 1890

A Neoclassical antique Swedish chandelier from Scandinavia circa 1890 adorned with a profusion of rock and cut crystals with six arms now wired for American electricity. This chandelier showcases the opulence created by a combination of gilded brass and crystal when paired in this manner. The cut crystals that are suspended from this chandelier are a combination of amethyst in colour as well as clear and there are also pear shaped rock crystals with their individual occlusions that give them a unique appearance. It is the vast amount of crystals and their lavishness that imbue this chandelier with its luxurious quality. The central stem of the fixture is sheathed in moulded glass while each of the six arms have an undulating shape that enables the crystals to be suspended from many points along each arm. The top of the chandelier has a spray reminiscent of a bouquet of flowers with a pear shaped rock crystal, a faceted cut amethyst crystal and clear cut crystal hanging from each of the six individual supports. Placed directly below the spray is a section of the cage that is distinctly Northern European as well as Russian in origin, namely the horizontal frame that has twelve straight sides to its shape, with a symmetrical pattern of both clear and amethyst coloured cut crystals affixed to the brass. Festooned between each of the six arm are three swags each featuring a combination of the crystals seen elsewhere on the chandelier. The curvature of the swags echo the movement of the arms and the curves of the moulded glass sheath. Also suspended from the base as well as the end of each arm is a large pear shaped rock crystal with amethyst rosettes for a total of seven large crystal drops. This chandelier was originally used with candles and has been rewired for American electricity ready to be installed by a qualified electrician. The gorgeous reflection seen on this chandelier is visible whether it is lit at night or seen during the day. Height listed is without chain.
