ALBEE REMAINS-LOW TABLES (2007)
These gold encrusted chandeliers may be all that remain of Cincinnati’s famed Albee Theater. These fixtures once graced the entrance of the grand theater, and hung alongside more than 50 others. Now they have been elevated to treasure status. These once grand lights, now modern artifacts, preserved under glass, provide a sublime glow and subtle reminder of past grand elegance.
The ¾-inch acrylic boxes encase the works as treasures. The plaster fixtures are reworked, gilded with 23k gold leaf, illuminated with Edison Bulbs, similar bulbs originally used, circa 1927.
The boxes hover just above the ground while hidden exhaust fans quietly keep interior bulbs cool. Illuminated on/off switches complete the pieces.
