"I don't mean finding 15 different ways to swing from a chandelier. But novelty in life drives up peoples sense of well being."
– Linda Fisher
This beautiful French bronze Empire chandelier is decorated by three ornate rams and has three arms for candles. There is also a stamp and signature which reads Henri Vian and Paris.
Henry Vian (1860-1905) was a celebrated Parisian bronzier specializing in the production of bronzes in the eighteenth century style and interior ornamentations of great quality. His output was concerned principally with the production of light-fittings but also included other bronze items. Such was the quality of his work that his casting and gilding can often be mistaken for earlier eighteenth century works of art.
He participated in the Great Exhibitions of 1878, 1889 and 1900, receiving a Gold Medal in 1889 and was a member of the jury with a status, hors concurs, a measure of excellence. His wife and son ran the business after his death in 1905 until 1944, when the city of Paris took over the premises for the l'Ecole des Métiers d'Art. (Source: www.adrianalan.com).
