Vintage French Steel Floral Bouquet Chandelier, Five Lights, France circa 1940

A charming vintage steel floral bouquet chandelier with five arms from France circa 1940. The complete whimsey of this fixture actually has its roots in eighteenth century France when bouquets of live flowers were gathered, tied with ribbons and affixed with lighted candles to provide illumination for outdoor parties. The bright colours of the flowers were always accented with brilliantly coloured ribbons and provided a festive note. Using hand made decorations out of natural materials was a tradition and banished the memories of the dreariness and cold of the winter months. This chandelier is made of steel fashioned into individual stems of flowers bound by a ribbon tied together with a bow. There are five arms that conceal the wiring for the light bulbs so they appear to float amongst the flowers. because of the vintage quality the steel has a slightly oxidized finish that adds texture and depth to the entire piece. The fixture is completely wired for American electricity and accepts chandelier base bulbs.
