Baccarat Chandelier at Jans Antiques

How fantastic is this piece!?!

Sergio at Jan's Antiques in LA sent me this information:

A Very Fine and Palatial French 19th/20th Century Gilt-Bronze and Fitted-Crystal, probably by Baccarat, Twenty-Six Light Figural Chandelier with Five Large Cherubs, each holding a frosted glass torch and surmounted with two arm-lights, each with their original frosted glass shades, the five extending supports in the form of drapes with tassels, and the bottom plaffonier with fitted cut-crystal edged panels in the form of an upside-down dome. Circa: Paris, 1900.

Provenance: The François Linke apartment in Paris.

Height: 60 1/2 inches
Width: 48 inches


Oh, to have the right spot in the chateau!

Amazing! I only wish I could afford it, though it may look kind of overwhelming in my apartment...
