Daum Nancy Frosted and Carved Glass Chandelier

This beautiful chandelier, a superb example of French Art Deco by Daum Nancy, features a flared cone-shaped shade hanging from three arms in this wonderfully warm and perfectly detailed piece. The richly honey-colored shade is decorated with carved and stylized patterns of ranunculus, passionflower, camellia, and morning glory flowers. The entire shade is finished with a frosted application, affecting the light it diffuses wonderfully.
