The Union League, Philadelphia, PA

 

Below are photos of a chandelier that was repaired by Klemm after falling from the ceiling.  Luckily, there was no one below, at the time.  An un-repaired water leak in the ceiling allowed water to run down the support stem and it slowly rusted through (photo).  There was a great deal of corrosion on the brass to indicate trouble but it apparently went unnoticed.  Several bent and damaged arms were repaired or replaced.  Numerous joints were repaired.  The brass was re-polished.  The glass globes were replaced with matching pieces and the entire chandelier re-wired.   All repair work had to match the other existing units.
