Crystal Gilt Metal Hot Air Balloon Chandelier French Empire Mid Century 6 Lights  Crystal Gilt Metal Hot Air Balloon Chandelier French Empire Mid Century 6 Lights
A charming petite chandelier in the shape of a hot air ballon, European, circa 1960. The balloons globe is composed of two molded glass hemispheres joined by a brass ring, with green crystal accents, and two lights on the interior. On top of the globe sits an attachment ring in the shape of a laurel wreath. There is a detached matching ceiling canopy (last photo).

Suspended from the globe by gilt metal chains are six candelabra lights supported on the heads of swans in the Napoleonic empire style. At the center of the swans is a single crystal spear pointing upwards. I believe the primary metal is brass, although the chains are lighter and may be an alloy. The chandelier is in great vintage condition.

The metal has predictable losses to the gilding and light corrosion. There is one small chip to the glass globe where the top hemisphere meets the ring. It is hard to see; I have attempted to show it in photo 11. Please see photos for details. Height to top of laurel wreath: 23.

Diameter across candle cups: 14.25. The item "Crystal Gilt Metal Hot Air Balloon Chandelier French Empire Mid Century 6 Lights" is in sale since Wednesday, June 27, 2018.
