Just a few pic's of some Antler Chandeliers I used to knock out, still have a few left. At the time I had a small stall in a local Antique/Art dealers,more of a hobby then a serious commercial venture, started off with one for my dining room, of which still as pride of place over the dinner table. The candles only lit on special occasion's, still a really nice effect "bouncing" off the Wild Red deer antler. These were part of a range I produced with a mate of mine, comprising of hand made/finished wrought iron goods, Wine racks,kitchen Pot/Pan holders etc. They all sold quite well, however my main stay bread & butter business was thankfully doing very well and taking up whatever precious spare time I had available. I made about 15 in all of the Antler chandeliers, efore I ran out of Antler, my supply useually scrounged for a few pints off shooting pals. Antler Art/furniture is i belive a huge business in the states, but to my knowledge still only a few outlets over here, and from what I've seen very expensive be-spoke pieces. I kicked around the idea of an electrified version, but in the end decided against this, not so much on added cost grounds, my own personal preference was for the candle lit orginal version, much more natural and in keeping with the natural materials utilised. I'm considering giving this project another go, I would therefore be greatful for any advice as to were I may source reasonably priced preferably Wild Red Deer antler.
Thanks in advance.
