Glass and gilt bronze chandelier

Restoration style 6-light chandelier with old gold finish - Lucien Gau - Chandeliers

Price: 4 838.00

Superb 6-light bronze chandelier, whose splendour, gilding and satinised glass globes perfectly embody the spirit and style of the Restoration period. The chandelier is composed of 6 U-shaped arms, each decorated with a gilded plant spiral, reminiscent of a young fern shoot rolled up on itself, arranged around a central thread, part of which is left bronze coloured, contrasting beautifully with the old gold patina finish of the rest of the chandelier. The basins at the end of the arms each have a large satin glass ball and a clear glass cylinder, which at the time allowed a candle to be threaded into the ball. Note the details of the mouldings on the basins and the ceiling rose to which the golden pendant chain is attached.
As the heir to a Parisian bronze workshop that has been in operation since the 19th century, Lucien Gau demonstrates year after year the exceptional craftsmanship that has been built up and handed down from generation to generation, both in restoration and conservation and in the reproduction of light fittings using techniques faithful to the period in which they originated.
A matching wall light can be seen under the reference 22050053.
Dimensions: 100cm total height, 70cm height without chain, 60cm diameter.
The light source is provided by 6 E14 or equivalent LED bulbs, to be purchased separately.

Lucien Gau

Sublime classic style lighting, solid bronze and bohemian crystal

Founded in 1934, Lucien Gau is one of France's most prestigious lighting manufacturers. In particular, Lucien Gau designs and manufactures an exceptional range of chandeliers, sconces and candlesticks in the Dutch, Louis XIII, Louis XIV, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Directory, Empire and Restoration styles. The manufacture, of exceptional quality, is carried out entirely in France. The craftsmen employed by Lucien Gau work, finish, assemble and patinate solid bronze using the most traditional methods, inherited from a long tradition of excellence. The bronzes are cast in the traditional way: for each model, the craftsmen model the parts of a lamp, a reference copy. For each copy of this model, a sand mould is made into which the cast bronze is poured. The mould, which is broken when it is removed, is used only once. This process gives a unique finesse and allows great freedom of design. Once cooled and removed from the mould, each piece undergoes a long process of finishing: deburring, turning, chiseling fine ornamental motifs, polishing and patinating are all done by hand and require a unique know-how. The most commonly used patinas are old gold, matt tin, bright gold and antique. Lucien Gau's collections include luminaires of great elegance and balanced forms. Whether a masterful chandelier or a discreet appliqué, each model has the same manufacturing quality. Lucien Gau has illuminated many exceptional buildings, castles, ministries and palaces all over the world. Really Beautiful is proud to present such a collection of luminaires of exemplary design and quality.
