Berlin, Werner & Mieth manufacture eight light chandelier
The structure of this chandelier is divided into two parts linked with four chains alternating rings and larger crystal disks circled with bronze. The lower flaring ‘corbel’ with a pine finial is centered with a blue colored crystal bowl and a rail issuing eight scrolled arms terminating in a stem bordered with crystals supporting drip pans and nozzles. It is surrounded with a pierced gallery of stylized palmettes supporting four ormolu palms linked with ormolu bridges in the form of a ‘canopy’. The circular drip pans and nozzles are chased with contrasting bands against a mate background.
The upper tier displays in its lower part a narrow ormolu crown enclosing a blue colored crystal bowl supported by a cross-shaped structure holding three pendants and a white cut-crystal faceted sphere. A suspension stem holds the chandelier displaying two-thirds of the way up an umbrella-shaped composition crowned with a disk issuing six small ormolu arms. The entire composition is enriched with prismatic crystals each hanging from a faceted small cut-crystal oval.
