Vintage pair of hand made Italian gold gilt, wrought iron and tin 8 light chandeliers in a swirling leaf design. This pair was hand made for an important lower CT estate c1930-1950. The design is spectacular, true to life, depicting leafy vines that have just been caught by a breeze, all swirling around and upward. The leaves are various sizes and are attached to a vine that twists through out each chandelier. They are superlative quality, and truly "One of a Kind." They measures 40 inches high and 36 inches across and has a 37 inches long hand wrought iron chain with hand made multiple leaf ceiling mount that measures 8 inches across. They have both been professionally rewired and are in excellent working condition. I would be willing to sell a a single for $1950. Contact me if you would like to do that.
