I attend estate auctions as a hobby. I come home with all sorts of things that I either sell here, in a yearly yard sale, or keep. I know a little about lots of old things but I do my best to describe what I see and to provide the best pictures I know how to take. Please ask questions if I'm not telling you what you need to know. Nous parlons aussi le francais si vous avez des questions.Most chandeliers have many damaged prism rods, so I usually by 2-3 to be able to sell 1 with rods that are in good to very good condition. This frame has the gold "Made in Italy" sticker as shown in picture. 6 long and 4-sided / star shaped (quatro punta). Note that since they are hand cut, they come in various shapes/sizes, though the length remains constant. With prism rods, it measures approx. 16 in diameter and approx. 14 long measuring from the top prism row (without hook/ceiling cap). Came with just 1 chain link (was mounted close to ceiling), but I will send you the extra chain links you see in the last picture if you need them. Please let me know if you want the extra chain since I will not send them if you don't need them, instead offering next time.. Metal frame is brass/gold in color and holds 87 prisms. I will send you an additional 3 prisms for future use. Chandelier has 4 working lights, bulbs not included. No worries for those of you unfamiliar, the prism rods/chandelier DOES NOT look blue when hung! Frame in very good used condition, with minor signs of wear/scratches including on the ceiling cap.
PLEASE NOTE : Some of the metal rods for hanging seem to be a little larger in diameter in the top row. As a result, I had to wiggle some of the prisms from side to side to eventually get their hooks onto the rods. Not a big problem, but took a little extra patience/fiddling.
Prisms are in good to very good condition. You will find imperfections, primarily in the form of small fleabites and a few small chips (small chips all near the top where they won't show). There are roughly 12 prisms with fleabites at the bottom, but certainly nothing that will show once the chandelier is hung. Interesting that in this set the imperfections are primarily at the top of the prisms, rather unusual! I showed you 2 of the biggest imperfections (one at the bottom, one at the top) that I could find.
Please let me know if you need more pictures. If you send with any other carrier, you will be responsible for any additional charges they may charge.
