Waterfall crystals highlight the beautiful verticality of the piece. Six swoop arms with French wiring support the metal cupped bobeches and wax sleeves. Delicate beads of different colors discreetly accentuate the ensemble. With its tall proportions and airy presence, this Italian crystal chandelier from the 1850s will enliven any living room, dining room or foyer beautifully.
