832-QRC-AG Polished Unlacquered Brass Recreated Neo Rococo Victorian 4 Arm Allegorical Gasolier Circa 1850
832-QRC-DK Antique Brass Finish Recreated Neo Rococo Victorian 4 Arm Allegorical Gasolier Circa 1850 (Pictured)
This type of Victorian gaslight allegorical chandelier was very much in vogue during the 1850's. This fine 4-light example is attributed to Cornelius and Baker, circa 1850.
The three boy figures around the stem are identical, and are believed to be the god of harvest since he is holding a sheaf of fresh cut grain. The arm bowl is complete with a conquistador's face between each arm. The finial has a hunting dog's face, while the canopy is a collection of medieval arms radiating from a coat of arms. Overall, this is a superb chandelier.
Shown in polished brass, we also offer custom hand-finishing to an antique brass, oil rubbed bronze, or pewter finish. Pictured here also are close-ups of the fine characters, in the antique brass finish.
