Typical of the 18th century, this model is particularly sumptuous because of the number and quality of the tassels with which it is covered.
Composed of a gilded bronze base with a central shaft that takes the shape of daggers, this chandelier has forty-four arms of light, distributed on four levels along the central shaft.
The arms, decorated with chiseled plant motifs, take the form of those of the chandelier by Giovanni Battista Metellino at the Château de Maisons Laffitte (dating from 1725). The arms are decorated with crystal cups and crystal pendants. The latter are repeated throughout the body of the chandelier, without weighing down the whole thanks to the effects of transparency.
