56. A RUSSIAN ORMOLU, CRYSTAL AND MALACHITE GIRANDOLE Russia, circa 1830s-1840s

The general composition of this girandole corresponds with the tradition of Russian objects created in the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century.

Its structure, however, speaks of a later period of 1830–1840, the period of historicism, as well as its overall decor, which underwent some transformations to suit the tastes and fashion of 1830–1840.
5,000-7,000 Pounds

Mrs. A.G Geyko, Head of Bronze Department, Hermitage Museum, assisted in cataloguing this item.
