It is no coincidence that people also referred to the Renaissance as The Enlightenment. It was an historical age, encompassing a cultural movement based on humanism, the arts and classics. Ladies and gentlemen of the time embraced new thinking and for the fortunate few new standards of design and luxury. The Renaissance collection brings Florentine influence to the art of chandelier craftsmanship. The body and arms present an intricate and ornate cast leaf motif that has been perfectly accented with decorative swags of wreaths and medallions. Homage is paid to the Italian glass artisans with decorative glass finials, canopy, collars and bobeches. Premium quality crystals of tremendous size make these works of art the renaissance or re-birth of the traditional chandelier.
