Description

This magnificent 10-light chandelier is a superb example of Russian Neoclassicism. The chandelier is crafted from clear and cobalt blue cut glass. The central shaped clear glass stem of the chandelier supports the springing of ten S-scrolled light branches, each terminating in a blue glass drip pan and a single candle. The stem of the chandelier is adorned with three elements above—and one below—that issue a host of glass brackets, upon which are draped innumerable cut glass pendants and chains of droplets. The branches of the chandelier are similarly adorned, set with dozens of pendants and draped with long chains of droplets.

Provenance-+

From the collection of Lawrence Herbert, founder of Pantone LLC. The chandelier featured as the focal point of Herbert's dining room at his Park Avenue apartment in New York, designed by the acclaimed US arcitect Peter Marino. The apartment was featured in an online article (click here) on the website WWD in January 2018, where it was listed for sale at $39.5m. The chandelier is visible in an image in the linked article.
