Chandelier

The basket-shaped chandelier is wide at the bottom, created of four naturalistic, leaved sedge stems that are tied at the bottom. The bulbs can be found in pairs at the bottom of the stems, and also in the cup of the two flowers bending outwards from them. Further four, smaller bulbs can be fitted at the top ring of the chandelier. Most of the original glass ornaments (the four, bulging, reddish shells at the bottom, the wreath around the top ring that resembles a hanging icicle, and also the top coronet with rays) have been damaged. Remaining are some of the opaque cylinder shades of the outcurving stems. The chandelier can be suspended with a chain of rectangular and round pieces.

Its maker won grand prize at the 1900 Paris International Exhibition.
