DAVID HOWELL ITALIAN CHANDELIER EARRINGS
Italian Chandelier - Red Enamel - Black Enamel Earrings
The Italian chandeliers hanging in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum’s main showroom are beautiful examples of 1930s art deco design. Crafted of stained glass and hand-forged nickel, the tiered lamp shades of repetitive shapes in staggered steps reflect a popular geometric art deco design of the moderne era. The chandeliers, original to the building, are surviving artifacts of the Auburn Automobile Company, which displayed its production cars in grand style, class, and elegant efficiency—an opulence that remains today.
