Catalogue Note

The obvious fragile nature of this type of chandelier has meant that few have survived and the present example is therefore  extremely rare. 

A similar cut-glass chandelier, formerly at Thornham Hall, Suffolk and now in the collection of the Winterthur Museum, U.S.A., is illustrated in Martin Mortimer, The English Glass Chandelier, 2000, p.10, pl.1. Another example exists in the collection of the Dukes of Devonshire at Chatsworth, illustrated in The Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth The House, 2002, p.189.
