15,000 - 20,000 USD
Property from the Margo Stratford Russell Family Collection
configured in the form of the Lazy Bar F Ranch brand
burled fir, painted metal, red leather, hammered brass tacks
25 x 22 x 19 1/8 in. (63.5 x 55.8 x 48.7 cm)
Overall in very good condition. The design of this chandelier is configured to read “FI,” the brand of Lazy Bar F Ranch. The burls on the “F” element complement and accent the form of the chandelier. The wood displays a rich and warm brown color when viewed firsthand and presents with open fissures and burls within the grain that enhance the character and complexity of the piece. The wood surfaces scattered extremely minor surface wear, including a small scuff at the base of the letter “F” element, not visually distracting. The replaced leather fringe encircling the light bulb is in excellent condition with some occasional extremely minor edge wear to the individual fringes, not visually distracting. The metal surfaces of the tacks, hanging componentry, and straps supporting the wood elements are all in excellent condition with very minimal wear. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician.
