A brilliant petite Montgolfier pendant chandelier in brass and laden with cut crystals, French circa 1920. Two brass rings, one small at the top and a second larger one below, are decorated with wave motif. Both rings have three raised Art Deco fans with scroll work at their bases. Multiple strings of cut crystal adorn the space between the rings, with loads of sparkling octagonal pieces. More crystal encloses the bottom of the piece, with rectangular prisms between the octagonal pieces, capped by a round brass finial containing the same wave motif.
Chain and canopy add 18.5" in height.
Condition: Great vintage condition. A couple of crystals have little dings. Slight variation of brass tones, typical for its age. Rewired to US standards.
