Vintage tole chandeliers are made of metal and hand-painted. They were made extremely chic and popular due to the Palm Beach style that I adore.
One of my favorite rooms with a vintage tole chandelier is kitchen designed by Ruthie Sommers:
You can find them on ebay and they typically start out at a great low price, but once the bidding starts they tend to go up quite a bit.
I was so happy to find a new tole chandelier that gave them the same classic palm beach style at an affordable price point.
Leave it as if, paint it a whole new color or perhaps just paint the flower petals and leafs at $140 it fits into most budgets at a steal!
