La Scala trimmed with rock crystal is easy to picture in a museum, surrounded by priceless antiques and collectibles. Don't be surprised if your guests take surreptitious cell phone photos of this chandelier. La Scala is a cast arm chandelier, a fashion that reached its zenith in the eighteenth century in Italy, Spain and France. The craftsmanship required to make cast chandeliers declined over the centuries, until Schonbek decided to revive the style. Here the cast frame elements are made from antique Schonbek family molds. The rock crystal ornaments are hand carved and hand polished, following ancient methods.
