The illustration of the catalogue is accurate. There are the inevitable dents, marks and scratches to the gilding due to age and use. The cut crystal and glass elements are later and one crystal dagger is missing. The girandoles are drilled for electricity. Please note that we do not guarantee that the electrical system is in working order, it has to be checked by a professional electrician. As stated in the catalogue this pair of girandoles was in the collection of Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé rue de Babylone.
