    Description

    A Pair of Beaux Arts Louis XVI-Style Gilt Bronze Chandeliers, circa 1900
    55 x 22 inches (139.7 x 55.9 cm) (each)

    PROPERTY SOLD TO BENEFIT ONE COMMUNITY, DALLAS

    PROVENANCE:
    Charles Cheriff Galleries, New York;
    Collection of Mrs. Toni Chapman Brinker and the late Mr. Norman Brinker, Dallas.

    Each with acorn pendant on a beribboned circlet issuing three band-form supports with fluted standard issuing twelve foliate candle arms and terminating in an acanthine cap.



    Condition Report*: Both structurally sound with later electrification that appears intact but not guaranteed to function. Fracture to one arm of one chandelier, requiring repair. Later modifications include a soldered tube for electrical wire on one support, and well matched later bobeches and candle cups with wax covered "candle" tubes. Attractive patina throughout with unobtrusive areas of verdigris oxidation concentrated in crevices. Gilding refreshed in some areas, and appears fairly uniform. Both chandeliers present well.
