This 52" diameter chandelier has 25 staggered lights with beeswax honeycomb socket, or candle, covers and draping strands of crystals throughout. Composed of flat steel bar featuring Greek key and scrolled elements, this light is coated in a distressed gilded (likely gold leaf) finish. It is adorned with many strands of faceted octagonal crystals from top to bottom with pendeloque crystals hanging from the tiers of the frame. This piece has a 7" diameter, 2 1/8" high, brass canopy with no chain. It is in good overall condition but may need additional work to prior to installation. Some of the candle covers have been damaged and may need cleaning, repair, or replacement. The wiring appears in good condition but is not guaranteed to function.
This chandelier was salvaged from the Kean Estate, a 17,000 square-foot mansion sat atop the highest point in Livingston, New Jersey. This Georgian style stone mansion was the original home of 10-term U.S. Congressman Robert W. Kean, father of former Governor Thomas Kean. This sprawling residence features 14 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and 15 fireplaces. The Kean Estate, and items from it, is featured on Episode 6, Season 11, of the DIY Network Show, "Salvage Dawgs".
