Elegant Louis XV style chiseled and gilded bronze chandelier with nine lights. The barrel is formed of a flowered vase surmounted by three leafy uprights, and ends with a seed. The chandelier is lit by nine light-arms of sinuous shape adorned with scrolls.
This chandelier is inspired by the models created by the bronze-caster Caffieri during the 18th Century, especially the ones attributed to Caffieri, circa 1750, for the Marquise de Pompadour, moved to the Mazarine library in Paris after the Revolution.
