Pull up a chair to the table...

Let's have a little light...
Gilt-bronze chandelier with cut crystal central column and colored bohemian glass drops in the shapes of apples and pears. The chandelier dates from the Charles X period (circa 1830), but the fruit drops were probably added later.
Pair of gilt-bronze and patinated bronze candelabra featuring neoclassical figures supporting four gilt-bronze arms. Bases are black marble.
Pour the coffee... do you take cream?
Lovely German hand-painted reticulated jardiniere in the neoclassical style with molded flowers, detailed interior painting.
