Large Pair Antique Victorian Cut Glass Clear Crystal Mantle Lusters Candleholder. Today we are delighted to offer for sale a fabulous pair of antique Victorian cut crystal mantle lusters!This luxurious pair is the epitome of 19th century Victorian elegance and style. Lusters were popular upscale home decorations during the Victorian era. Overall expensive, they were found in the homes of the wealthy and usually displayed in a prominent place such as a parlor fireplace mantel, sideboard or console table.
The lusters were often used as candle holders as the sparkling prisms would help amplify light in candle-lit interiors. This beautiful pair is of the highest quality and craftsmanship. It is most likely of Continental origin and crafted of sparkling crystal. Each luster features a round base with cut serrated border that supports a baluster-shaped center stem with cut panels which in turn supports the intermediate bowl with diamond-cut border and top bowl with high crenelated border with cut star burst panels interspersed with cut slivers with drilled pin holes that support the large and beautifully cut faceted spear drop prisms. The lusters sparkle beautifully and are recently cleaned and ready to be enjoyed.
