  • Provenance: Purchased by the present owner in the early 1980s.

    These chandeliers are of a type made in both the 18th and 19th centuries in England, probably Birmingham. The dove at the top of the stem suggests that this pair was made for a church. Compare similar examples made for church and illustrated R. Gentle & R. Feild, Domestic Metalwork 1640 - 1820 (1994), p. 183.
