Two exceptional large antique Italian chandeliers w/ clear blue & amber pendants

SKU: 15349

These two extraordinary, large chandeliers date from the eighteenth century and have been modified in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Each has eight branches heavily decorated with glass pendants, molded crystal and blue and orange glass decorations of very nice quality. These are classic Genoese chandeliers that will be the focal point of a room. Both have beige passementerie for the tops.
