This is a reproduction of a silver chandelier, which comprises a pair hanging in the private apartments at Knole Park in Kent. This chandelier was reproduced for public conservation projects and is illustrated in a special, antique silver-plated finish. The original pair, date from circa 1690, and form part of a suite of silver which remain in the house in the King’s Bedroom. These chandeliers have eight scroll-shaped branches in which the ornament is unmistakably French.
Reference : English Furniture & Decoration (Lengyon) figure 311.
This chandelier is an historically-accurate reproduction of the original and has one tier with 8 arms.
