Early Sicilian ox or donkey cart iron axle, made in the 17th or early 18th century. The iron work on this ceiling fixture was created by a master Italian blacksmith sometime during the 17th or early 18th century. Heavy iron stock was hand split into flowing traditional Italian Renaissance designs, depicting flowers, birds, people and angels. A later blacksmith converted the axle to a four candle pendant light fixture. Measures 42 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 12 inches high. The drop is 37 inches. The bobeches each measure 6 inches across and the candles measures 4 inches across. The back plate carving reads Alvares.Carrado.Pachino. This truly unique chandelier is so detailed that the longer one studies it the more one sees. It would make a stunning addition to a country kitchen or dining room.
