Magnificent, Very Rare Chandelier
This remarkable 15-light, finely gilt Chandelier is a beautiful model drafted by Ludwig Lobmeyr in 1870.
The five swept main arms terminate in 10 side arms on the lower level and 5 armes in the level above. The 15 candles have gilt nozzles and beautiful elaborated glass drip pans.
All arms are embellished with various hand-cut glass pendants and glass beads decoration. The Chandelier stem consists of beautiful hand-cut glass elements, crowned by a gilt bronze wreath, with small arms decorated with very fine Bronze Doré string of pearls and very fine elaborated glass pendants.
The entire Chandelier is abundantly decorated with stunning, hand-cut glass pendants and very fine Bronze Doré ornaments.
Very special are also the five jewel-like pendants on a Bronze Doré pearl string with fine cut prisms and beads.
All glass elements are of highest, truly refined quality, the Viennese manufactory Lobmeyr undoubtedly stands for.
A perfect example for the period when Lobmeyr already worked for the new clients who built all the beautiful Palaces on the Wiener Ringstraße. Theophil Hansen, for example, was one of significant architects who designed not only the buildings but also the Interiors.
His philosophy was that only the combination of design of a building and the Interior turn it into a “Gesamtkunstwerk”. Read more about Hansen and his connection to our location at Palais Pallavicini in the our history section. Also, we introduce an elegant leather armchair by T. Hansen in our collection, click here.
This Chandelier here reflects perfectly the style of this time.
All our Chandeliers undergo a careful inspection and renovation process in our inhouse-workshop, and are newly fitted for electricity.
