Cornucopia Chandelier

Regular price$4,725.00

 This amazing cornucopia motif chandelier is both classical and contemporary in design.  The original, built circa 1790-1810, was offered for reproduction by a Pennsylvania dealer.  The thin rod tubing has been reproduced exactly to scale. Our Cornucopia chandelier graces the historic Roosevelt home on Campobello Island. This fixture, like all of our lighting, is invisibly electrified as the wiring is concealed. This feature creates an exquisite effect when lit.

Dimensions:  W: 44.5 in x H: 31.75 in

Comes with a standard 2' of chain and wire.  Please contact us for price of custom length.  Custom colors available as well.

Authentic Designs is a third-generation family business and has been handcrafting heirloom quality lighting in Vermont for over 50 years.

  • *Materials: All metal parts are made of American sheet copper, brass or terne coated copper. Individual parts start out as sheets of metal on which patterns are laid out, cut, folded, rolled and soldered by hand. When called for in a particular model, wood parts are hand turned of Vermont maple and stained or painted in keeping with the original designs. We make no compromises with either materials or quality.
  • Dimensions:W: 18 in x H: 31.5 in
  • Hand Burnished Copper:
  • Copper parts are hand burnished and left uncoated to oxidize and age to a patina similar to an old penny.
  • Terne-Coated Copper:
  • A coating of hot-dipped tin alloy is applied to the raw copper sheet at the foundry. When left exposed to the elements its bright new finish will dull down to a mottled gray.
  • Darkened Terne Coated Copper:
  • Terne-coated copper is oxidized by hand and then sealed to retain its blackened finish. DO NOT USE METAL POLISH AS IT WILL REMOVE THE PLATING.
  • Hand Burnished Brass:
  • Metal Parts are burnished and left uncoated to age naturally. They will darken over time and acquire a black colored patina.
  • Antique Pewter:
  • Metal parts are hand-plated with our pewter formula. They will oxidize darken and acquire the patina of mottled, old pewter. DO NOT USE METAL POLISH AS IT WILL REMOVE THE PLATING.
  • Gunmetal:
  • Metal parts are plated with our custom blue-black formula.
  • Finger Prints:
  • Fingerprints on metal are initially prominent due to accelerated oxidation. Each fixture is assembled by hand and the moisture in the skin darkens the contacted metal rapidly. The drier remaining portions of exposed metal will darken more slowly. Both areas will blend as they age and acquire a patina.
