2.105 inc. VAT

Johannes Vermeer (1632 - 1675) painted many Dutch interiors besides his famous "Girl with a Pearl Earring". In the painting "The Art of Painting", a magnificent golden chandelier hangs above the painter and his subject. Dutch historians have noted that such chandeliers allowed artists to demonstrate their expertise in rendering shimmering and refracting copper under changing lighting conditions. A true testament to their craftsmanship and artistry.

With its small profile and six gracefully curved arms, the 19th-century Vermeer 106 chandelier is a paragon of Dutch lighting design. At just 45 cm high and 54 cm wide, this single-storey chandelier is a sophisticated feature. The circular copper frame is decorated with intricate scrollwork, reminiscent of ornamental styles that preferentially graced stately mansions. Although modelled centuries ago, this hollow copper chandelier is modernly wired for use and bathes contemporary spaces in a warm golden glow. Subtle and elegant, the Vermeer 106 pays homage to cherished Dutch traditions in metalwork with its delicately curling silhouette crafted using centuries-old techniques.
