I purchase this online because it did not need a lot of work. It was newly rewired even. Save the ghastly gold candle covers, it looked like quick work.
Not. The seller packed it incredibly stupid, and it arrived with all the arms bent out of shape. The wiring? EEK! A fire hazard. So, after taking forever to get the arms all back in the right shape, installing new wiring, and new candle covers (bye-bye gold paint!), all was well.
The chandelier is 1920s and is rich with details. I’ve never offered it before.
