Chicago Mosaic Floral Leaded Chandelier
The shade has a very intricate, deep band of tulips amidst foliage. The glass again is very good with pink/red tulips, green leaves, and rainbow branches. The rainbow glass in the branches is very hard to see but it is several colors swirled together. The band is 7" deep so the floral pattern comprises a good portion of the shade. They are no cracks or repairs. There are 12 panels with each of them having a double compound bend. The whole shade is in excellent condition. The finish is an aged brass with the leading having the same aged finish. This is an excellent Chicago Mosaic hanger dating to the 1910-1930 era. It is a large shade measuring 24.5" in diameter and approximately 14" deep. It has a 4 socket cluster.
