Crystal chandelier, ca. 1800
In 1932 the Knox Memorial Association purchased this chandelier from The Quarters Antiques in Virginia to furnish the Oval Room in their memorial. It is not known whether a chandelier graced the original Montpelier, but it is likely. This twenty-branch chandelier, understood to be a Waterford, is extremely similar to a fourteen-branch chandelier at Arlington Court in Devon, England, also understood to be Waterford.
Purchased by the Knox Memorial Association in 1932.
