This is a handsome antique cast iron Tudor five-light chandelier, circa 1930. The light fixture is signed by its maker, Virden Co. The chandelier begins with a hammered canopy, coming down in a chain to a loop finial ornamented with a stylized pair of dogs’ heads. Below the finial, the chandelier body is supported by chains hanging from five trefoil hooks. Each chain is accented by a foliate medallion. The ring-shaped, cast iron chandelier body features a hammered texture and an underside decorated with abstracted foliate designs. Extending from the chandelier body are five arms, formed of stylized fleur-de-lis, which support hammered bobeches with twisted finials. On the underside of the chandelier, volute details converge into a foliate medallion, from which hangs a scroll-and-leaf finial. This light fixture is in excellent condition. It has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The chandelier body measures 18 ¼” wide and 21 ¾” tall, and the fixture is 33 ½” long overall.
