For What It’s Worth

Mr. Santi:
We purchased this chandelier in France a number of
years ago. It was sold to us asfixture made in the 1930’s. The
metal looks like silver. Can you
verify its age and its value? —

Clarence:

Your chandelier certainly looks
like it was made in the 1930’s. The
style would be Art Deco. It must
be a fairly large chandelier judging from the photo. The silver metal would be either a pewter finish
or silver plate over brass. If in excellent condition, this style chandelier would have a value of between $6,000 and $7,500 in today’s
market.
