A Fine Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze and Cut-Crystal Twenty-Four-Light Chandelier by La Compagnie des Cristalleries de Baccarat.

This fine gilt-bronze chandelier has a leaf cast corona hung with pendants and drops, with four rope twist supports holding a central guilloche pierced band. The band has four gilt-bronze putti each supporting foliate cast spirally fluted branches, with urn shaped gadrooned and fluted nozzles and drip pans. The chandelier is hung overall with pendant swags and pear shaped drops and terminates in a faceted ball terminal.

The design for this unusual and sophisticated chandelier with gilt-bronze putti to the central band is illustrated in Baccarat's Tarif des Articles d'Eclairace, from the turn of the century, as Lustre Série E.193. A further variation with bronze arms and glass shades is illustrated as Série E.460.
