Mid-century French toleware hot air balloon chandelier. This wonderful and rare piece was hand-crafted in the 1940s and based on pioneering C18th French balloon design. The body of the chandelier is constructed from ivory coloured toleware and adorned with vibrant red and blue metal banners and gilt flowers. Red metal ropes connect the four light fittings, each of which feature delightful red scallop 'drip trays' and there is a beautiful red scallop and ball finial at the base of the lamp. Brimming with charm and playfulness the chandelier would work in most rooms and, especially, a child's bedroom. In very good vintage condition, the chandelier has been rewired and is ready to use.
