6 light Williamsburg chandelier
In the mid 18th century, the components of lead crystal chandeliers became more heavily cut and featured star-shaped drip pans, notched arms and more detailed stem pieces. Top and bottom canopies and pear-shaped drops were added. The reproduction chandelier shown is one of a suite manufactured in the 1970’s to replace those lost in a fire at the Governor’s Mansions in Williamsburg. The style is typical of the period 1750-60.
