A massive Empire, Napoleon III-style French chandelier with tiers of putti or cherubs with navy blue-black globes with swags around the top orb and foliate designs around the bottom. Bronze or gold ormolu. France. Early 20th-century up until 1940s, in the late 19th-century ornate, figurative style. 36ʺW × 36ʺD × 42ʺL. Wired but untested. The top swag needs affixing. I'm not sure how exactly how the globe attaches, either at the base or in the top wreath, but in either case it looks like it's missing the decorative cap on the very bottom. This chandelier is massive, and will require secure support to hang!
