There are 12 images of this item.
Early Sicilian ox or donkey cart iron axle, made in the 17th or early 18th century. The iron work on this ceiling fixture was created by a master Italian blacksmith sometime during the 17th or early 18th century. Heavy iron stock was hand split into flowing traditional Italian Renaissance designs, depicting flowers, birds, people and angels. A later blacksmith converted the axle to a four candle pendant light fixture. Measures 42 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 12 inches high. The drop is 37 inches. The bobeches each measure 6 inches across and the candles measures 4 inches across. The back plate carving reads Alvares.Carrado.Pachino. This truly unique chandelier is so detailed that the longer one studies it the more one sees. It would make a stunning addition to a country kitchen or dining room.
