Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The monumental scale and quality of this chandelier would suggest that it would only have been made as a one off commission for a very important house or palace. For any craftsman at this time to invest the huge money it would have involved in producing a project on this scale without a commission, and to specific requirements, would have been unheard of.
A very similar chandelier to the one the present chandelier is modelled on is illustrated by Hans Ottomeyer in his book 'Vergoldete Bronzen II' , p. 13.
