Netherlandish, (Rotterdam?)

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 958

The chandelier has two series of eight S-shaped branches around a baluster stem resting on a massive globe. The branches and shaft have been correspondingly numbered from one to eight with a system of small bars arranged in two horizontal rows around the two central discs of the baluster. One of the attachment-pegs has been replaced. The slender, baluster-shaped pegs and the acorn-shaped finials are characteristics of a number of eighteenth-century chandeliers from Rotterdam.
