An interesting example of a French, late 19th century, iron, tole, and crystal chandelier. There are beautiful shaped and light-colored prisms along with clear bunches of grapes and amber pears which hang from the cage iron form. A central iron and tole “tree” with leaves of crystal on tole and drops of amethyst and clear prisms could possibly suggest that the chandelier was made by Bagues.
The chandelier was electrified in the 20th century.
