MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE

FRENCH GILT BRONZE
ANTIQUE CHANDELEIR


This beautiful quality French gilded bronze chandeleir dates to the first quarter of the 20th century.
We didn't actually weigh it but we estimated it to be around 20kgs
This is an important factor when estimating the quality of a metal light fitting as the high quality
bronze lights are much heavier than even brass and of course the modern repro versions are a light alloy
coated in ‘brass’ and have very little weight in comparison

This chandelier has 15 lights that take the small screw-in bulbs
(there are three hiding near the centre that you might not be able to see but they are there)
and measures approx. 80cm across the base

We have fitted it with new wax candle sleeves from the US to finish it off to a high standard –
these are the cream tubes that the bulbs emerge from – and I think they set it off very nicely.
The old ones had perished with nearly 100yrs of heat from the bulbs.
It has been cleaned and rewired and is ready to be installed by an electrician.
