This chandelier with glass rods, attributed to Gaetano Sciolari, is an elegant and graceful statement with its swirling rods and gold frame. The frame is less wide at the top and bottom and widest around the middle, giving a seamlessly swirl like appearance. Each glass rod rests in its own individual gold plated setting. The rods and the gold plate shield the bulbs; the light produced is a very soft and warm light. This piece would be a welcoming chandelier and would be beautiful in an entry or over a dining table.
