H. F. du Pont and his father, Henry Algernon du Pont, designed Winterthur in the spirit of 18th- and 19th-century European country houses. He filled it with his collection of European art and decorative arts and American art and antiques. Now a museum, Winterthur has 175 period-room displays of decorative arts spanning 1640 to 1860.

Currey and Company #9837 Camelot Chandelier
57" high x 50" wide
20 x 40 watt Candelabra
Finish: Zanzibar/Gold Leaf
Material: Wrought Iron
Not for the faint of heart when it comes to scale, the Camelot Chandelier demands a statuesque room. The impressive size is rivaled only by its masculine attributes. The frame and hammered steel bands that surround this 20-light fixture have been treated to a strong Zanzibar finish while accents are flourishes in gold leaf. The medallions and swirling leaf motifs that complete the design are indeed worthy of King Arthur's lauded castle.
Currey and Company 5412 Duke Wall Sconce
3 x 60 watt Candelabra
11" wide x 26" high
Shades: Zanzibar Black and Gold Leaf
Get your royal on and give a space an uptick in luxury with the Duke Wall Sconce. Finished in deep Zanzibar black that is brought extra finesse when Zanzibar gold leaf accents are applied, this incredibly detailed and opulent wall sconce is a true masterpiece. At once masculine and feminine, the three-light fixture, inspired by historical designs, is in our Winterthur Collection. The museum is known for looking back to history to bring designs forward in a new light.
Currey and Company #5031 Wharton Wall Sconce
15" high x 9.5" wide
2 x 60 watt Candelabra
Finish: Zanzibar Black/Gold
Glass: Seeded Glass
Material: Wrought Iron
Slender strips of seeded glass are precisely hand-cut and fitted into the curved frame of the Wharton Wall Sconce. The textural glass and a gold reflector give the light source extra dimension, which is provided more contrast by the hand-finished Zanzibar black surfaces that have been ornamented with gold accents. The style of the two-light fixture is befitting a space of the Wharton namesake.
