These Chandeliers were originally kerosene lamps and were converted in the early 20th Century to electricity.
This Chandelier is most definitely in the American Arts & Crafts style.
This Chandeliers was originally designed and made by either Tucker Manufacturing in Boston, Mass or Bradley & Hubbard. Similar designs appear in the Tucker Catalogue of the time and the B & H Catalogue from 1883 to 1884. (An original copy of the B & H Catalogue will be supplied with the Chandelier).
Tucker Manufacturing was acquired by Bradley & Hubbard in the 1870's and the latter took most of Tucker's Designs and made them their own.
The design of this chandelier is so distinctively B & H that we are as certain, as we can be, therefore, that these were made by Bradley & Hubbard.
Whilst we cannot find the exact design in the B & H Catalogue from 1883 to 1884 or the Broughton Illustrated Catalogue, the design is so distinctively B & H, as to think it was made by any other Company.
This Chandelier is in MINT condition.
There are no Bradley & Hubbard labels on the Chandelier.....but, this is not unusual, as very often when they were converted to electricity, the kerosene caps were probably replaced and the original caps (fonts) normally bore the Bradley & Hubbard marks.
With all factors, including Provenance, taken into account......We have NO DOUBT that this is an original Bradley & Hubbard Chandelier.
The Hurricanes and shades are later replacements.
The glass shades are probably French, but are very sympathetic to the originals. They are made of frosted etched glass and curved and lipped edges.
The cast iron is 'gun metal black' and beautifully cast.
The Arms feature neo-classical designs featuring classical Greek Heads.
The Arms are heavily decorated in floral and fleur de lis motifs.
The central column is made of brass on the top section, copper on the mid-section and it has a brass knob finial on the base.
This particular model is EXTREMELY RARE and HIGHLY DESIRABLE !
