Item Of The Month In Depth, November – A 19th C American Colza Chandelier

This month I would like to focus of this very unusual chandelier, which has an interesting story attached to it.

It was removed from the old chapel in the Chelsea barracks, London, SW1. The chapel is the only building left standing from the original Victorian buildings and has been in the spotlight recently, as the land is currently being redeveloped by the Candy brothers. The chandelier was rescued from the chapel recently and it was thought, that if emergency listed status could not be granted to the chapel, it would have been demolished. The chandelier was reputedly given by an American benefactor, sometime in the early 20th Century. It is made of gilt brass and is of American manufacture, and would originally have been designed as a three light gasolier, later being converted to electricity as with all light fittings of this period. It is unusual in that it is of classical form, but rather than displaying the usual Greek, Roman or Egyptian imagery, this has been substituted with native American faces. It dates to around c.1850-60.

New In – A Silver Plated Flemish Chandelier

New in this week, is a two tier, silver plated brass chandelier, which dates to the late 18th Century. Silvered later on, it has arms which are held in place with pins, typical of this period. It has during the 20th Century been drilled for electricity and can easily be wired again or used with wax candles. It has twelve branches. Flemish in origin, I purchased this in Cape Town, probably brought over in the 19th Century by a Dutch family.

Silvered chandeliers work very well in minimalist and contemporary interiors as well as period ones.
