Enjoy these gorgeous Tiffany Chandeliers!
The chandeliers are a crowning point in the Washington State Capitol Legislative Building. The architects felt the most important fixtures were those in the north portico, in the rotunda, and in the entry in the south porte cochere, as well as the large gathering rooms. They went all the way to New York City to have Louis Comfort Tiffany create the fixtures (no one here in this wild wild west was competent), which, along with the six bronze doors, cost the state $158,000. They were designed by Carl Moser.
I love the chandeliers in the entry in the south porte cochere.
The warm glow of the glass hits the delicately detailed bronze and
colors it nearly copper in places, so the lamps look like they are on fire.
