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. Pictured here are close-ups of the fine characters in the Antique Brass Finish.

Measurements:

  • Height:  58" overall, but can be shortened up to 31" upon request.
  • Spread:  36", measured with the pictured shades.
  • Fitter Size:  2 58"
  • Canopy:  7 ½" in diameter.
  • Weight:  36 lbs.
  • Wattage:  Up to 100 watts incandescent per socket, yielding a total of 400 watts incandescent.

Shades are sold separately, since many of our clients have their own shades. We have a good variety of hand crafted glass shades to choose from.  The shade shown with this fixture is our hand-cut crystal trumpet shade.

This Victorian chandelier is also available with six-arms for a total possible yield of 600 incandescent watts for larger rooms.  If you have high ceilings, we offer a Rococo extension kit that will add 65" to the mounting rod.  Extension kits may be combined for multi-story height ceilings.
