This silver chandelier is definitely modern with its sleek and simple design and is larger for center of rooms. The all wrought iron chandelier is shaped into a swooping design with a ball detail in just the right places. The 28 candles are at a higher place than on normal traditional chandeliers with three unique tiers of lights. The lights are concentrated on the upper part of the chandelier for a truly unique design. The center post is also a sleek design that ends at a point at the bottom with a small ball on the tip and with three unique larger balls that hold the candle arms. The chandelier is finished in a hand finished brushed silver, the petite balls are gold leaf and the candles have a darker smokey beige sleeve that are held by more modern styled candle cups. Unique and beautiful! This chandelier is round and a large 42" across x 61" high from the bottom tip up to where the 8 foot chain meets at the circle detail. Twenty eight lights at 60w maximum each that is perfect for larger rooms. Weighs 29 pounds.
