From Ceiling 18HComment:This sensational vintage French Empire style chandelier will be the talk of your dining or living room! Crafted of metal, this gorgeous, 1950s Rococo light fixture features a green painted body with golden accents. The richness of detail in the cast metalwork will astound you. A crown of cast leaves tops the chandelier, while elegant arms branch out from the center. Interestingly, this chandelier features both up-lights and down-lights for maximum appeal. The down-light sockets are camouFlaged with draped leaves, while the traditional candles are supported by green cups. This vintage French chandelier measures 27 inches in diameter by 19 inches high. It suspends 18 inches from the 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 miscellaneous nicks, dings, and scratches 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.

MetalColor(s):BrassBulb Included:0Mark: Style: EmpireNAPOLEON AND THE EMPIRE STYLEAfter the French Revolution in 1789, a new Republic was briefly installed. By 1804, however, a brash young general by the name of Napoleon Bonaparte had literally crowned himself Emperor of France and ushered in a new flamboyant style of furniture and decorative arts. Just as fashion had been greatly impacted by the discovery of Pompeii in 1748, Napoleon’s conquering of Egypt in 1798 led to a mania for all things Egyptian. The Sphinx, and especially its claw feet, was seen on everything from chairs to cabinets and sideboards, as well as other symbolic animals including the swan, serpent, and griffon. Decorative elements from the Neo-Classical Louis XVI period were continued, but in a more grandiose manner and in combination with a military theme. Classical columns were frequently used as supports and ormolu (an alloy of brass and other metals meant to resemble gold) was used excessively to make furniture look glamorous. Ormolu laurel wreaths mounted in prominent positions on furniture, symbolizing victory in battle, are also frequently found on pieces from the Empire style. These military references refer to Napoleon’s conquests as he expanded the French Empire. Mahogany is the predominant wood used in the masculine Empire style. It is interesting to note that as the United States was in its infancy in the early 1800s and was greatly aligned with France, many new civic and bank buildings were built and furnished in the Empire style, with Greek columns and claw feet prominently featured.
