2.588 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.

A paragon of 19th century Dutch craftsmanship, the Vermeer 109 chandelier exudes elegance with its single 70 cm wide tier illuminated by 6 gracefully curved copper arms. Expertly crafted from hollow copper, this antique chandelier has a delicate profile 57 cm high. The round frame is decorated with intricate metal scrollwork reminiscent of the ornamental styles that graced palaces and mansions of the era. Although modelled centuries ago, this chandelier is modernly wired for use today. With its warmth and subtle grandeur, the gold-coloured Vermeer 109 pendant honours the renowned Dutch traditions of metalwork.
