Russian Empire style Blue Glass Globe Chandelier
A Russian influenced crystal and gilt bronze chandelier styled from the early 19thC Empire period, this chandelier likely dating from the early 20thC. Five bronze and crystal chains support a large round blue mercury glass bowl, from which a middle band of decorated gilt bronze supports five swirling candle arms having three candles each. Each arm is decorated with a gilt goat’s head and hung with long finely cut crystals. The five chains connect with an upper level smaller blue glass bowl from which more sprays of crystals are suspended. French circa 1930.
