Design Tips:

Brass chandeliers are sometimes called Dutch or Flemish chandeliers because they originated in what we now call the Netherlands. Brass was a less expensive alternative to the gilt bronze ormolu of French chandeliers. The brass chandelier typically has a central stem or baluster with a ball finial at the bottom. Curving and sweeping arms end in simple candlecups and bobeches, the tray below the candlecup. This simple design was also popular in Colonial America of the 18th century. The simple elegance of brass chandeliers works well in traditional rooms with antiques. These chandeliers can be found in banks, hotels and Colonial style homes.
A classic brass chandelier is a great choice for an interior with other gold accents. In this dining space the brass chandelier ties in with the brass candlesticks on the table as well as the gold framed art work and brass pulls on the chest of drawers. Using a single metal tone, like brass or silver, can unify different design elements in a small space.

Quality at a great price.

I replaced an ornate Williamsburg brass chandelier with the SC573, and am extremely pleased with the results. The fixture gives a much more up dated and modern look to the room. It is understated and looks like a more expensive fixture. The shade is a nice size at 9 inches tall by 15 3/4 inches wide, and looks good over a smaller table. The online picture is a bit misleading because the shade appears to have metalic bands around the top and bottom. In reality, the entire shade is a pretty cream color. I was a bit unsure about the scalloped shade, but it is quite nice. Adds a bit of interest without going overboard. Good quality fixture for the money. Very pleased with my selection.
