Incense Chandelier - BEFORE

Incense Chandelier - AFTER


Dating from c.1910, it is a family heirloom that both the owner and her husband had wanted to have re-done for a long time. It was in old, ragged condition. We custom-made a frame and gold fabric shade with new 6" fringe and added the old garlanded fringe from the original, by sewing it back into the new. All the wood was repaired, filled, and restored in its old finish.
New similar matching wood feet were turned and re-dowelled in.

Four lights were added on the top-inside, and the original complex, multi-tiered switch was re-configured to do the new altered job of light control. There are now twelve lights altogether.

The owners have a showplace spot all ready for it, and we are certain this lamp could go in many fine antique magazine settings as a centerpiece. This is one of the more interesting restorations of this kind we have ever done, and it required great patience for its "step-step" needed approach.
