This exceptionally rare, Russian Neoclassical chandelier is the epitome of early 19th-century luxury and style. Crafted in Saint Petersburg of mercury-gilded bronze, cobalt blue glass and intricately cut crystal in an exuberant fountain motif, this magnificent twelve-light fixture recalls the grandeur of Russia's sumptuous Imperial palaces. This light is very similar to one created by Johann Zekh, one of Saint Petersburg's most celebrated masters of the late 18th/ early 19th century, for the Winter Palace apartment of Grand Duke Alexander Pavlovitch in 1796. 

After the Russian Revolution, objects that were thought to represent bourgeois wealth were forbidden by the Communist regime, and countless rarities were destroyed. It is extraordinary to find items of such luxury from pre-Revolutionary Russia on the market, especially those that have survived in such excellent condition.  

Circa 1820 39" diameter x 71" high
