An extroadinarily rare Russian Rock Crystal Chandelier from the late 18th century. The Beyzentine style, silver plated and bronze foliate leaves eminating from an onion  base, sees barley twist arms supporting turet shaped candle holders. The natural Rock Crystal spheres are of superb optical quality, cut with diomonds from the choicest of Rock Crystal seams below the Baltic Sea. The reason these Chandeliers where called "Baltic Chandeliers".

Indeed all the crystal on this fine Russian Crystal Chandelier is cut from natural rock including the very clear florets around the top and the swags adourning the whole.

Also included in the price are the two matching wall lights.Three lights on each and also adourned with Rock Crystal spheres and swags.
