Here is a fine Muller Frere Luneville Art Nouveau Chandelier, signed and dated 1925. The yellow, orange and purple glass of the center bowl and three satellites evoke a cloud-streaked sunset. The highly detailed hand-crafted wrought iron armature forms chestnuts, chestnut leaves, and vines. I have looked at dozens of pictures of Muller Frere Art Nouveau chandeliers with similar glasswork, but have seen only a few with metalwork comparable to this one for craftsmanship and artistry. The glass has some very light markings from the tips of the metalwork (see photo); it's otherwise unmarred.
The metalwork is unworn and undamaged. The fixture was rewired about 25 years ago with common American sockets (Leviton). The new sockets were re-tapped to match the original French threads of the armature, so the armature is unmodified and can be retro-fitted with correct French sockets (if they can be obtained). Some worn-out original sockets will be included for reference. The dimensions are: Total height 35", Bowl diameter 16", Satellite arms 6.5", Satellite shades height 6", Canopy diameter 7.5.
The heavy suspension chain pictured is not part of the fixture and is not included. I'll obtain 1 to 3 quotes and let you know the choices. Thank you for your interest. Your questions and comments are always welcome.
