We have restored a beautiful late 19th Century French gilded cast bronze and crystal antique chandelier. It is stamped on interior of arms by Petitot, a well know quality French Lyon bronze lighting maker. Petitot began with Antonin Petitot, a bronze artisan who founded his company in 1878. His son Henri took over the operation in 1917 and sold light fixtures in both a retail shop in Paris and through catalogues which distributed lamps not only in France but throughout Europe and even in the United States. The metal work was really their forte, and they joined forces with the finest producers of glasswork in the 1930s including Muller, Sabino, Degue and Schneider.
It is truly a beautiful antique light with a foliated cage form interior with an elaborate leaf canopy and decorated overall with quality crystal faceted pendants. A perfect light to add sparkle to your home for Christmas!
