This Russian chandelier is distinguished by its exceptional rarity. The entirety of this important Neoclassical fixture is covered with a myriad of intricately cut glass lusters, all suspended from branches of hand-crafted ormolu. An elegant cobalt blue glass central bowl completes this engaging work of illuminated art. Objects that were thought to represent wealth were forbidden by the Communist regime that took over Russia, and countless rarities were destroyed in the process. It is extraordinary to find items of luxury from Russia, especially those that have survived in such excellent condition.

Circa 1840
