Chandelier decorated with heraldic dragons Chandelier with five arms of light shaped dragons with outstretched wings. The Universal Exhibitions of the 19th century enabled the introduction of new products where elegance competes with the technical. Despite the persistence of academic lines, the largest workshops and the best craftsmen integrated the technical progress to their works, as fitting the gas for the chandelier presented here. This chandelier in gilded bronze with five arms of light decorated with heraldic dragons is typical of the English productions of the middle 19th century, near of Messenger & sound productions. It offers extremely fine carving with opulent decor of foliage and a delicate work of cut crystal.
Lustre aux Dragons héraldiques Lustre à cinq bras de lumière figurant des dragons aux ailes déployées. Les expositions universelles du XIXe siècle permirent la présentation de nouveaux produits où élégance et technicité rivalisent d’audace. Nonobstant la persistance des lignes académiques, les plus grandes maisons de lustrerie et les bronziers d’alors intégrèrent les progrès technologiques à leurs réalisations, comme la mise au gaz pour le lustre présenté ici. Ce lustre en bronze doré à cinq bras de lumière figurant des dragons héraldiques est le reflet caractéristique des productions anglaises du milieu du XIXe siècle, proche de Messenger & sons. Il offre une ciselure d’une extrême finesse couvrant la pleine surface d’une sphère facettée, accompagnée d’un opulent décor de rinceaux feuillagés rendu néanmoins aérien par la présence de bobèches et cristaux taillés.
