From Ceiling 16HComment:These large Capodimonte style chandeliers are becoming harder and harder to find. This lovely example dates to 1950s Italy and features a ceramic central column, ball, and candle cups. The white ceramic features a pretty design of winged cherubs or putti. The charming pastoral scene is painted in pastel pink, sky blue, and deep green with gold metallic accents. Six simple metal arms support electric candles. This large Capodimonte style chandelier will make a beautiful addition to your cottage living room or your feminine boudoir or bath. This large Italian chandelier measures 31 inches in diameter by 23 inches overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.Item Specifics:Shows normal wear to the finish and to the candlesleeves due to age and use.ShippingFree Shipping:Free shipping only applies within the Contiguous 48 United States and this item will be shipped via Greyhound Bus.

CERAMICThe word ceramic originates from the ancient Greek word keramikos, meaning potter’s clay. The practice of making ceramics has been in existence for nearly 30,000 years. Clay, the primary ingredient for any ceramic, is primarily made of aluminum silicate, which is a malleable soil from crumbling rocks. Ceramics can be grouped according to the type of clay used, the temperature at which the clay is fired, and the duration of the firing., METALAs it is often difficult to determine the exact composition of metal objects due to the prevalent use of metal plating and alloys, EuroLux Antiques uses the term metal rather than the more specific terms copper, brass, aluminum, steel, etc. for its listings in order to avoid confusion. Bulb Included:0Bulb Quantity:6Style: CapodimonteCAPODIMONTE (aka Capo Di Monte)The most famous porcelain manufacturer in Italy was Capodimonte, which was founded in 1736 at the Royal Court in Naples. Charles VII (1738 – 1759), son of Philip V of Spain, married Maria Amalia, granddaughter of Augustus II of Poland, founder of the Meissen porcelain factory in Germany. Charles VII wanted to create a porcelain factory in Italy that would rival that of Meissen. Without much initial success, he built a larger factory in 1743 in the Royal Wood of Capodimonte. Upon the death of Philip V, Charles moved to Spain to ascend the throne as Charles III of Spain and moved the entire production with him to Madrid, including all the molds and the skilled artists. Eventually Ferdinand IV King of Naples (1759 – 1816) returned the porcelain manufacture to Naples, where it continued as a royal factory until 1807. The high-quality works were in great demand throughout Europe. At that time, it was sold to a commercial corporation, which later closed in 1821. The business, including the original molds, was divided and sold in lots to several companies that still use the molds and the Capodimonte mark of a crown with a blue N today. Two of these companies are Doccia and Societe Richard Ceramica, also known as Ginori.Capodimonte was extremely influential in Italy and many Italian potters imitated their designs, especially those with flowers and mythological scenes. In modern usage today, Capodimonte denotes ceramics made in the general style and fashion of those made by the 18th century Neapolitan porcelain manufacturer, although most pieces today are not made of porcelain. A great many of these pieces were made in the 1950s and 1960s. Many of these Capodimonte style pieces are marked Bassano (a city focused on ceramic production in the Marche region) or simply Italy, or even without a mark at all.Object:ChandelierThe Fine PrintOur chandeliers are typically measured from lowest point of the bottom of chandelier to the top of the main body of the chandelier. This does not include the chain that hangs from the ceiling. If you have any questions regarding height or other dimension of a particular chandelier, please contact EuroLuxAntiques.
