A stunning antique three-light Neoclassical chandelier, dating from the early 1900s and featuring original acid cut back glass. This inverted dome chandelier begins with a leafy canopy that comes down in three chains to the shade below. Each chain is fastened to the bowl-shaped shade with a decorative brass volute. The original shade features a fabulous pattern of acid etched and painted flowers and foliates; this beautiful antique glass was produced by the remarkable process of etching away glass with hydrofluoric acid to create designs in relief. This light fixture is in very good condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass, just the expected fleabites around the rim. The light measures 20″ wide by 7-1/2″ tall and 36” long overall.
