An Ormolu Chandelier

 

This chandelier is shown in the book, Ormolu Dollhouse Accessories  - by Swantje Kohler. It is photographed on page 99. As you can see from the photos, the shade is richly made with an open pierced border that surrounds the shade. The top of the shade has an impressed design with an elevated center to attach a wire should you want to electrify this fixture.  The chandelier is suspended with three chains with a decorative piece that would resemble a smoke bell and has a large ring on top of it to hang the chandelier from the ceiling. If you look under the shade you will see the electric bulb in the center and a row of aqua tassels hanging from the edge of the rim. A beautiful chandelier for your collection.

 

Measurements: It suspends 5 down from the ceiling.  The diameter of the shade is 2-1/2
