Ducharne Chandelier by Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann.
Florence Camard, Ruhlmann: Master of Art Deco, New York, 1984, p. 300
The bronze presents with surface scratches throughout as well as areas of light tarnish and oxidation typical with age.
The relief decorations and outer edges of the chandelier present with areas of very minimal and occasional discoloration to the gilding which are not visually distracting.
The silk ropes and tassel are in very good condition overall with some loose and misaligned threads throughout consistent with use.
The shades have recently been replaced to match the original design and are in excellent condition overall.
