Pair Of Mantle Lusters Candelabra Baccarat Medallion Style 21" Tall for sale
Current customer rating: (3) based on 48 votes
Pair of mantle lusters with prisms and hurricane shades. Each measures 21 1/4" high overall and 12 1/2" to the top of the candle cups. These lusters can be used with candles or they are designed with metal tube and cut out on the base so they can be easily electrified if you choose to do so. The design is very similar to Baccarat Medallion except that there is beading around the medallions. The candelabra are in very good condition but the bobeches do not match and one of them has crack due to someone screwing the candle socket on too tightly. The crack is stable and not too obvious. The un-cracked bobeche has shorter neck and doesn't fit as snugly under the candle cup. Each bobeche supports 12 crystal prisms, three of which have significant chips on the points and one has chipped rosette. Most of the wires to hang the prisms are dark/rusty and crimped. One candle cup has very tiny chip on the underside. The prisms will be removed and wrapped separately for packing and shipping. The hurricane shades have metal collars that fit snugly into the sockets for stability. The glass is heavier than modern hurricanes and they have some tiny bubbles and swirl marks, typical for older hand made glass. These are antique items which we have attempted to describe to the fullest extent. We have examined them carefully and find no other notable damage besides what has been described above. Minor "fleabites" on the prisms should be expected. We found none on the candelabra or hurricanes themselves. These are quite heavy (4 1/2 lbs each, before packaging) and will require significant cushioning so the box will be large, which increases the shipping cost, particularly if the destination is west of the Mississippi. If the shipping quote seems high, please contact me and will check to see if it is accurate. Local pickup in Maryland is available. Possible delivery to the Washington DC-Balitmore metro area. Contact us to confirm before purchase if you wish to have them delivered locally.
