I purchased this poor circa-1930 pan-style chandelier. It had suffered the ignominy of being spray-painted back. It begged me to restore its dignity. Begged. I could not refuse the poor dear.
Dignity restored. The chandelier was most grateful, and even I teared up a bit.
Having just restored a matched set of eleven such fixtures, I knew exactly what needed to be done.
A unique, and lovely, aspect of the chandelier is how the cloth-covered wing (new!) weaves through the beautifully detailed arms. So cool.
