This chandelier and the two accompanying wall sconces are of the finest quality. The finishing of the glass and metal components is unsurpassable. Likewise, the design is of excellent ingenuity. Leopold Bauer used a similar imposing glass bowl with an unusual "triangular cut" for a chandelier made by E. Bakalowits Söhne around 1900. We presented it at TEFAF NY Spring 2018 under catalogue number 4.
