Fresh out of a Greek Revival in Indiana,
this Rococo Revival Starr Fellows and Company Rod Hung
Gas Chandelier is a wonderful example of early gas
fixtures that hung in the first houses using gas
lighting in this country. We have not had one of
these chandeliers since we sold a pair of 4 lights
back in 2008.
The wonderful interwoven figural snakes on the end
of each rod and the figural maiden, add much to the
period charm of this fixture. They come along every
once in a while. This one is complimented with a
great set of Greek Key Gas shades. This Chandelier
was manufactured in 1855 when companies first started
creating product lines using interchangeable parts.
This is an early one.
