ANTIQUE SOLID BRONZE CHERUB PUTTI 2 SHADE CEILING LIGHT CHANDELIER c1850 All in very good working condition, lovely quality solid bronze cast circa 1850 putti or cherub, beautiful quality casting, detailed, a good bronze. Sorry bulbs are not included but easily bought... I would suggest low watt modern bulbs with good luminosity.
A ceiling light / chandelier (and I'll hazard an educated guess) was originally designed for use as gas lighting and with the advent of electricity in homes, was converted to electricity at a later date. The cherub is supporting two floral or cloud, frosted glass shades, both in excellent undamaged condition. It hangs from a bronze ceiling rose on a brass chain, the overall drop / height being 27 inches long, but this can be shortened by 11 inches if you have a low ceiling, by taking out links in the hanging chain / support. The cherub a good size of approx 9 inches long.
It uses standard common bayonet fitting bulbs. Period / antique solid bronze cherub chandeliers are hard to find, and I'm happy to offer this little beauty in good working condition, the wiring having been replaced with modern flex and secondary insulation, earth wire fitted to top ceiling rose and it's safe to use, however it would not pass modern European electrical standard rules as nearly everything now has to be in plastic. All as per the images. The item "ANTIQUE SOLID BRONZE CHERUB PUTTI 2 SHADE CEILING LIGHT CHANDELIER c1850" is in sale since Sunday, April 29, 2018.
