Large French Belle Époque Bronze 5-Light Chandelier Cherub Frosted Glass Covers
This fine French late 19th century Belle Époque patinated and gilt bronze chandelier features 5 lights with decorative frosted glass flower covers. It has three cherubs along the twisted ribbon column. The first sits near the top of the tall center post and reaches up toward the heavens. The middle putti is the largest and has open arms reaching out into the room. While the smallest of the cherubs uses the bottom twist as a swing. The gold center column has a softness with the curved lines. Reminds me of Paris!
