Iron and Glass Island Rectangular Chandelier!

Slim Rectangular Island Iron Chandelier
The perfect modern iron chandelier for long slim tables and islands! This all iron fixture is narrow and long with a special addition of glass candle globes. The iron is made into a rectangular box style with slim iron rods where even the globes hang over for an impact. The framework is simple with a 55" long design x 6" wide (which is mostly the globes width) x 18" high. The double chains makes this chandelier a total of 91" high. The larger candle cups holds three smaller bronze candles each for a total of 12 candles at 25w for plenty of light. Notice the unique bubble design on the glass globes too for an extra design element. The finish is a bronze with subtle gold highlights that adds definition and a slight distressed look. The canopy is a long rod shape that will not cover the conventional round ceiling box if you are replacing an existing chandelier. Item #C09742 at The Designer Insider!
