Neoclassical style; 1790-1810

This magnificent chandelier and its mate once hung in Lord Rothschild’s mansion in London. The pair were given to Hampton at the time of the site’s opening to the public in 1950 by Ailsa Mellon Bruce. Her Avallon Foundation had purchased Hampton from the Ridgely family and presented the mansion and grounds as a gift to the National Park Service in 1948.
