This listing is for a beautiful and elegant vintage handmade French lustre chandelier from the 1940s, that is in very good condition . It belonged to my Italian grandmother and has been securely stored for years . I tested it and it works properly, as the wiring is original to the chandelier . When turned on, the light shimmers off the crystals giving off little iridescent sparkles. There is detailed embossing around each of the four tiers, as pictured . Th ere are 40 2 octagon and 11 4 prism s pear shaped c rystals that all appear to be in relatively good condition . Some of the crystals have chipped tips and one crystal pair has been replaced and is barely noticeable. This is truly a nice chandelier and would be the perfect fixture to decorate your dining room.
