This restored antique 1880's Eastlake Longwy Gas Chandelier is in excellent used original condition. The fixture may be attributed to the pre-emminent American gas lighting manufacturers Thackera, Buck and Company, ca. 1881, Thackera, Sons and Company, 1882, both of Philadelphia or McKenney and Waterbury Company of Boston. The chandelier is constructed from spun bodies, round and square tubing, bent and twisted flat strapping and decorative castings, entirely out of polished red brass. The main body and round tubing are both decorated with concentric rings.

It is designed in the Eastlake Anglo - Japanese style with a thin open frame composed of with small square tubing arms, round tubing and spun bodies with concentric rings, bent and twisted strapping forming a cage around the oriental-style French Longwy brush pot cylinder insert from Longwy, France, and fine, low relief decorative castings. The flat two-sided bas relief castings on each bent straps have stylized oriental flowers.

The Longwy ceramic insert is held in place on the center stem by a pair of spun brass bodies. It is vividly decorated with various natural forms of the Mediterranean acanthus plant in the classical manner against a turquoise blue ground.
