Something Quite Extraordinary

After much ado, I finally finished the restoration of an extraordinary circa-1940 chandelier! The chandelier was made in Europe.


There are six acanthus leaves made of hammered brass.


Astonishing. Fabulous!


Hanging from each leaf are crystal spheres. A larger sphere hangs in the center.


There are six sockets, too.

    I LOVE this. If hung by a pole rather than a chain, it would look *right* at home in a house 4 decades older. The acanthus leaf is such a universal motif. I use it all over my house!
