This marvellous pair of Empire style chandeliers, wrought from ormolu and tôle peinte, is designed to resemble the heavens, the dark metallic sphere of each studded with stars.
The chandeliers in this pair are wrought from ormolu (gilt bronze) and tôle peinte, or painted metal, in the exuberant Empire style.
Each chandelier is formed of a black tôle peinte sphere, which, being studded with many ormolu five-point stars, functions as a celestial globe, designed to resemble the nocturnal heavens. The sphere is encompassed at its centre by an ormolu meridian, which issues nine ormolu branches—each branch cast in the form of a swan, with the swan’s bill holding the drip tray and candle holder. The sphere is appended above with a pineapple finial and below with a larger pineapple pendant finial.
Each sphere is suspended by four ornate ormolu chains from an upper ormolu mount. This mount is ringed by a corona of enlarged anthemia and affixed to its underside with a series of pendant finials.
