A fine Parisian Ceiling Light
Reference No: DoussFr161
A wonderfully large and fine early 20th century Louis XVI style ceiling light of eighteen arms decorated with a central ‘urn’ baluster, the sweeping arms with large drip-trays and with gilt brass ‘poignard’ finials. Note the fine quality of the cast and chased metal work, with the contrast between the gilt brass and the bronze-patinated brass. Paris, circa 1930.
