Majolica & Brass Pineapple Chandelier

20TH CENTURY FILTH
A really rather exceptional chandelier that was found in sunny Marseille, but could quite conceivably be Italian.
The pineapple and bulb holders are made from majolica and are without fault.
Surrounding the bulb holders are small brass decorative spikes mimicking pineapples.
The black bulb holders (there are six arms to this and the bulbs required are small screw in candelabra bulbs) have been extensively restored as they had clearly seen better days. My lighting restorer sanded them down and resprayed them to match the matt black that they would have been originally. Given I wanted to keep the light as original as possible, a couple of these are not quite as straight as the others however its not visible unless you are taller than the light!!
The bulb of the chandelier is made from solid brass so the wiring was designed to sit on top of the arms - as you can see in one of the close-ups. It is very subtle and again, would only be visible if you were looking down on the light!
Its really quite a special piece, extremely detailed and therefore of great quality.

The height measurement is to the top of the of the ceiling cup - you could remove the links if it needed to hang higher.

20th Century Filth is run by Sandra Carter who left a career in advertising and life in London for the seafront in St Leonards on Sea; an area already known for it’s antiques and vintage shops.

Having renovated a few properties which fuelled her interest (read: obsession) with all forms of mid-century design, she’s gone from being tasked with hunting down specific items for family, friends and Clients to focusing full time on sourcing beautiful pieces from France, Italy, Germany and the UK.

She offers a variety of antiques and design from late 18th century to the 1980s, but with a specialist interest in mid century lighting.
