This 42-light chandelier is of cut glass mounted on a gilt brass frame.

The cut drops are either of facetted pear or octagonal shape. From a gilt metal finial a shower of drops falls to the tier of lights, which are arranged in four groups on scrolling branches. Below the lights sit two tiers of pear-shaped drops.


Earl Fitzwilliam, Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire.
