Magnificent, Gilt Tent & Bag Chandelier around 1900
A rare Tent & Bag Glass Chandelier, manufactured in Vienna around 1900, with eight arms and 19 lights altogether. The rich, hand-cut glass decoration consists of the original, hand-cut glass elements, such as tapering baguettes, small octagons, prisms and further characteristically shaped glass pendants.
The high-quality, gilt frame is beautifully elaborated with trailing foliate band decoration, centered by a four-leaf clover, issuing the eight arms with finely foliate and blossom decorated candle nozzles. Elegantly manufactured, gilt palmettes are evolving in between, interconnected with each other, as well as with the arms, through beautiful hand-cut glass beads.
The finial has a small, blossom embellished band with hand-cut glass pendants.
The crown of this exceptional piece is wonderfully executed with a foliate decorated rim, and gilt palmettes with glass bead pendants.
A rare, Viennese Chandelier of remarkable quality and condition, fitted with many lights, radiating a wonderful reflection. It will be a magnificent addition to every Interior.
