An elegant large-scale three-tier Italian late 18th century giltwood and crystal Genoese North Italian chandelier. The giltwood central column terminates in a finial at the bottom with carvings of acanthus leaves on the central stem. Six large wrought iron scrolled patinated iron arms sit on a round metal ring which support them and garlands and tear-drops of cut-glass crystal pendants are hung across all the arms. The gilding is typical Italian Mecca gilding (silver gilt with lacquer to make a gold finish). This creates a beautiful mellow lemony colored tone. Original gilding and patina but a few lost crystals have been replaced.
