This circa-1930's antique crystal chandelier has a classic wedding cake design with five graduating tiers. They are decorated with 250.
Zelezny Brod Sklo 2-part crystal prisms, along with two more dangling from the top, and a round crystal ball on the bottom. The shade / hood measures 15 inches in diameter, assembled fixture measures 26 inches in height from bottom hanging crystal to the hanging hoop on top of the fixture (the chain and ceiling cap add an additional 14 inches approximately).
The chandelier was spray painted at some point in its history, and this "new" finish shows its own visible wear and tear from age and use. The fixture has its original standard-size ceramic sockets and interior wiring, which is very old, but working. The exterior wire was replaced with new-old-stock cloth wiring (see last photo for details). The ceiling cap has a threaded end attached to the downrod, but has no mounting bracket.
Some prisms will have small fleabites, scuffs or chipped/dulled points, but nothing that detracts from the overall appearance. The top ring around the fixture is single-spaced and holds 78 prisms, prisms on the dangling hoops are hung with an empty space between them, holding 68, 48, 38, and 18 crystals as they graduate downward. Three extra replacement crystals are included in case of accidents.
