Antique Lighting from The Drawing Room
# 4801. A single American Girandole. Incised mark "Cornelius & Co. Patent April 10, 1849" Commonly called the Colonial Lady model; made in Philadelphia this Girandole was sometimes coupled with a Colonial Officer Girandole. Mounted on a square painted slate base 5" square. The Girandole is 15.5" tall to the top of the candle cup. Fitted for electricity (can easily be unfitted with no drilling used in electrifying) with the shade and electric candle adding another 10" to the height. This form does represent Cora Munro a character from The Last of The Mohicans by James Cooper. The prisms are consistent in age and appear to be period to the Girandole. This patina is worn but there is some gilt finish left on the figure, less gilt finish on the stem and prism ring. The prism ring uses the bird decorative motif. This makes an attractive electrified candle lamp. Price is $550.00.
