This truly spectacular chandelier is crafted from hand-cut and parcel gilt glass by prestigious Victorian glassware makers F & C Osler.

From its tip, the chandelier is over three metres in height, and features a large, lower basket which supports the lights, and an upper decorative baluster, from which it hangs. The baluster is crafted from cut glass, and features scrolls above long and slender hanging droplets. From the baluster extends a central bevelled stem, which is surrounded by narrow strands of beaded cut glass. It is from this stem and strands that the lit basket of the chandelier is suspended.

The broad basket of the chandelier features four tapered tiers which are set with a monumental sixty-four lights. All sixty-four lights are crafted from transparent glass and take the form of slender, hurricane lamps with gently flared rims. Every light features delicate decorations of gilt banding and foliate patterns, which glimmer and sparkle in the light. The lights are set onto scrolling gilt and glass arms, which are hung with cut glass droplets and meet at a central support. From this central support extends downwards three, tapered tiers of droplets of cut glass, which finish in a faceted glass globe.
