This stately look is influenced by Moorish, Spanish and Gothic styles. The intricate metal scrollwork is made of handforged iron, and the handmade shades emit a soft radiance, appearing much like real candles.
Without doubt this a Quoizel Masterwork - a reproduction of one of this timeless chandeliers that certainly hung over Hector's Trojan hearth, or in one of Nero's splendid Roman palaces, or in King Ferdinand's Seville throne room. The design was picked up by American Arts & Crafts artisans and used in the Mission, SW Mission and Spanish Revival Movements. You would have seen this chandelier hanging in many Southern California mansions, Texas ranch houses and sometime in the perhaps not too distant future over a dining table in the American Mars Colony. Totally Timeless. Quoizel's rendering is made from heavy gauge cast metal finished in a rich Imperial Bronze. The single large shade is genuine hand-blown Candella Scavo Slightly Amber Glass with slight waves blown into them for the craftsman look. Well sized at low profile 9" overall height, 13.5" overall diameter, 2 x 60-watts (use 2 x 23-watt compact flurescents for 200-watts of brightness and save money and energy.) For smaller dining rooms and foyers, also hallways, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and master closets. Dramatic and eye-catching ceiling mount at a very good price.
