726-ZHG-PW Pewter Finish Zeus Figural 6 Arm Chandelier
This is a beautiful, solid brass, figural reproduction gas chandelier. All castings are lost wax and beautifully done. Six muscular Zeus figures look sternly down from each arm. This fantastic quality chandelier is attributed to John W. Call, whose catalog of circa 1890 illustrates a nearly identical design 725-AHG-CH, our "angel" or goddess figural chandelier, (pictured here also).
This chandelier is shown in the polished, unlacquered brass as it was originally manufactured. Our experienced technicians can hand-finish the brass to an antique brass, oil rubbed bronze, or pewter finish, if one of these suits your decor.
Overall Height: 48". Fixture could be shortened by as much as 18".
If a longer overall drop is required for your project, our 1014/18-EXT extension kit will add up to 65" to the length of the light. Kits can be connected together for very tall ceilings.
Spread of arms with shades, as illustrated, is 39".
Shade fitters are late Victorian 4" for gas glass shades. Shades are sold separately. We picture our crowned oak leaf design shade as a suggestion. For even more elegance, try our leaded cut glass shade.
In keeping with the mythology theme, your restored or new Victorian home could feature a number of sconces, including as pictured here also, Mercury, or a male or female figure newel post light. What delightful personality these add to your decor! Our house hardware also includes famous mythological figures such as Medusa and the Spirit of the Wind.
