I am a lover of polished brass. There, I said it…right out loud!
I’m sure you’ve noticed, brass has been getting a bad rap over the last few years. Its cousins chrome, nickel and oil-rubbed bronze have squeezed it out as the metal of favor. Now granted, I have seen some not-so-great brass in my days, the kind that looks lifeless and dull, or worse, pitted. But I never really understood why quality brass, in particular polished brass, came to be so vilified and despised.
Here are my top favorite brass chandeliers, enjoy!
This chandelier looks amazing and is cubist in shape, not necessarily style. It is modern and cool, even though it was designed back in the 1970s. Actually the inside of this chandelier is made of steel that is afterwards plated with brass in order to add some spark. It works with four big light bulbs and the light it casts is warm and nice thanks to the brass.
A stunning 19th Century French Chandelier in excellent condition which came from a grand house in Hampstead in North London. It has to be seen to be appreciated and when in the sunlight, the crystals cascade around the room in a shower of rainbows…its gorgeous!
