Exceptional 19th century Meissen porcelain chandelier with twelve arms. The chandelier is decorated with flowers, garlands and cherubs in polychrome porcelain. A total of nine cherubs overhang the chandelier. Six cherubs sit holding a garland of flowers in their hands while three cherubs dance in a crown around the upper part of the chandelier surrounded by garlands of flowers. A bouquet of flowers in a water lily is suspended from each arm of the chandelier creating movement.
This chandelier, comparable to the chandeliers of the castles of Ludwig II of Bavaria, is of exceptional quality and rare finesse.
This type of chandelier is extremely fragile and few have survived in perfect condition. Most are restored or in poor condition. The present chandelier, which has been preserved in the same family for more than 60 years and is being presented for the first time on the art market, is complete and in perfect condition.
