The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is one of 16 national museums in the Netherlands. Its collection includes pieces by 17th-century Dutch masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Hals and provides an overview of Dutch art and history. The Rijksmuseum has been housed in the building designed by Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers since 1885. The 2-storey Rijksmuseum 800.3 model is a faithful copy of the spherical chandelier that hangs in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The 800.1 model is equivalent to the top floor and the 800.2 to the bottom floor.

The Rijksmuseum 800.3 2-storey model is a faithful replica of the original model in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The imposing Rijksmuseum 800.3 evokes the grandeur of the Golden Age. With a height and width of 85 cm, twelve solid copper arms protrude gracefully from the hand-cast frame decorated with swirling metalwork. Although modelled on an ancient original, this impressive replica is wired along the arms for modern use while retaining its historical charm. With its rich, lustrous glow and intricate craftsmanship, the Rijksmuseum 800.3 is a tribute to the master metalworkers in the Netherlands who made ornate fixtures that illuminated palaces and public spaces.
