There is a long tradition of designers painting pieces to give them a different feel and look. This was very popular among designers in the Bay Area. This chandelier probably began as green painted. The textured bone colored paint was added to give it a lighter and brighter feeling and was probably used in a monochromatic room. We have fixed the wiring and have new wax candle covers. We will update photos asap. The cardboard one in the picture where beaten up. This chandelier was made circa 1970 in the USA.
