Wrought Iron Chandelier Inspired By Castel Tasso In Northern Italy
This chandelier is inspired by Castel Tasso, also known as Reifenstein Castle, in the South Tyrol region of Northern Italy. When the castle was originally built, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian County of Tyrol, and was named Reifenstein castle by the Lord of Stelvio. In 1919, at the end of WWII, the region was annexed to Italy. Since that time it has been a combination of German and Italian in language and practice; hence, the two names for the castle. This castle is considered to be one of the most well preserved castles in the region, mainly because it has never been destroyed or taken over in its long history. Originally built in the 12th century, The castle has changed hands often and was improved in the 14th and 15 centuries. The donjon has been dated back to the 12th century while the great hall is from the 15th century.
This chandelier takes its styling from the past but is ready for today. The chandelier itself is made in the same way as an original 12th century chandelier was made: with hand forging techniques and wrought iron. Replacing the wax candles, we have wired the chandelier for power and all of our electrical is UL listed. This is a piece of history that will be functional in your modern home.
