An exceptional quality and rare early 19th century eight light brass chandelier signed ‘Johnston Brookes & Co’, having an elaborately worked central stem decorated profusely with leaf work, scrolls and winged putti above a central bowl with resting dragons issuing eight scrolling candle arms of serpents and winged dragons with leafy drip pans and nozzles, connected by floral swags; above a spiral twist collar with double vase pendant below, decorated with scrolling leaf work. The inside of the bowl houses a removable dish, engraved ‘MANUFACTURED BY JOHNSTON BROOKES & CO NO.32 NEW STREET SQUARE LONDON 1821’.

Note: A similar chandelier, probably from the same workshop, is in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle. An almost identical chandelier, formerly in the collection of Viscount Leverhulme at Thornton Manor, was acquired with Stafford House by Leverhulme from the Duke of Stafford; this chandelier is also signed by Johnston Brookes & Co., but dates from 1823 and was retailed by William Collins.

English, 1821
