Circa 1870, crystal and original ormolu mounted French chandelier. With an open fretwork ceiling rose and single column in the form of leaves and branches with flower heads, and at the base there is a large circular bezel. With various tiers and levels, fluting and leaves and from this each of the rococo arms comes off to a light fitting. The light fitting has a drip tray, open fretwork and stylish leaves, and beneath these again there is glass crystal drops. The underside of the chandelier (when looking up at it) has a lovely consistency as each of the leaves follows the same direction as the one in front of it, with a mixture of flat gilding and ormolu. In the centre of the base there is a large circular cornet and from this protrudes a lovely stylish finial. We have had it re-wired for electricity (originally gas).

Georgian Antiques was founded in 1978 by John Dixon's brother Padriac in a small shop at Jocks Lodge, Meadowbank in Edinburgh, with John joining the business after finishing college in 1981. The business grew so rapidly, they couldn't keep up with their inventory needs. Their goal has been to create a one-stop-shop where designers can complete an entire project from lighting to furniture to accessories. Scotland's largest antiques warehouse is located in a converted whiskey bond in historic Leith Edinburgh. With 50,000sq ft over five floors we offer a wide range of quality Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture, as well as continental and small decorative items. Our stock is constantly changing.
Georgian Antiques has 2939 antiques for sale.
