A small stem-type chandelier with five arms cast in bronze is dedicated to a chamber space. The décor of arms is typical to the Historicism style.

It is an inexpensive industry-produced ware, probably made in the big metallurgical centre — Warsaw. The chandelier is a typical ware of the late 19th – early 20th century. However, it is interesting as a reflection of the industrial revolution and its accompanying processes.
