L 1
AAn outstanding enormous Arts & Crafts brass and iron chandelier with a subtle Gothic Revival influence originally from St Georges Church in Glasgow. Measure: 9' high x 7' 4" wide St Georges was built in C1808 with this light fitting being commissioned in C1890 around the time electricity was first being introduced into major cities across the UK. This chandelier was one of the first few electric lights to be installed in the city of Glasgow, a historic landmark and testament of how beautiful a chandelier could be and born out of the furnaces of the Industrial Revolution.
