834-QRC-CH Recreated Neo Rococo C 1840 Gasolier - 4 Arm Chandelier by Starr Fellows in Polished Unlacquered Brass
834-QRC-DK Neo Rococo Gasolier in Antique Brass Finish
Unless you've been in the most high end Victorian mansions you've never seen anything like this. Our recreated FOUR ARM Neo-Rococo Gasolier is Circa 1840 and was originally made by Starr, Fellows of New York. Its beauty is truly timeless. From 1840 onward, its presence graced Ante Bellum homes; New York townhouses; and Chicago Mansions (and others) alike.
Our beautiful reproduction is made by the Lost Wax casting technique from solid brass, the casting process used for fine jewelry. The canopy is a collection of medieval arms radiating from a coat of arms. Each link in the lovely ornate chain must be individually made.
Our light maintains authenticity by utilizing the early gas 2 5/8” shade fitters . Shades are sold separately for the greatest variety of personalization, or you may use antique shades.
We show these fine lights in their natural unlacquered brass state, but if you are performing a historic restoration or matching older hardware, inquire about our hand-finished patina. We can change the brass to an antique brass.
As delivered,it is 51” tall, but it can be shortened anywhere from 51” to 31”. Or,if required to be taller, we can supply a rococo extension kit which can add as much as 39 additional inches for each kit used. Kits can be put together for extra high ceilings. It has a 34” spread when fitted with 7” ball shades. The decorative canopy is 7 1/2" in diameter including the decorative elements.
Also available is our 835-HRC-CH which is the SIX ARM version. Just like the four arm but with two additional arms and two additional runs of decorative chain.
