Floravita Reverse Hand Painted Glass Chandelier Info

Thank You for your interest in my reverse hand painted chandeliers. Each of my reverse hand painted glass chandeliers has a tremendously high level of artistry. All of my chandeliers are painted and signed solely by me, Jenny Floravita. I have sold several hundred chandeliers through my studio and through fine art galleries—several hundred happy clients. Prices are very fair for a work of art of such a high caliber. Look through my chandelier collections for just a few minutes and you will see why I have so many clients who love my work. My customer service is very detailed and excellent and I’m always here to speak with you either over the phone or via email. You will notice there is an outstanding quality and originality in my work.

With Your Purchase

Chandeliers are installation ready and include a ceiling canopy, chain and a lovely Jenny Floravita designed, hand-forged chandelier fixture. Fixtures are wired for Medium base sockets, rated for 60 watts and include complimentary LED bulbs. A licensed electrician can install your chandelier. If you have questions that are technical, my husband Patrick is a licensed electrician here in California and can talk to you over the phone or email but in general, my chandeliers should be an easy install if you already have a place for them with modern wiring.

Weight of Floravita Reverse Hand Painted Glass Chandeliers

  • 24 inch glass diameter chandeliers weigh 25-30 lbs. Chain and ceiling canopy, included, are rated to hold 60 lbs.
  • 33 inch and 36 inch hand painted glass chandeliers weigh just under 50lbs and your licensed electrician should know how to hang them securely. Heavy chain and ceiling canopy, included, are rated for 100lbs. Extra long chain adds a little bit of weigh and your electrician and general contractor will know how to reinforce the weight.

Drop heights are defined as, from the top of the ceiling to the bottom of the glass bowl and can be lengthened with chain—included will be as much chain as you require. Please measure your ceilings as I will request that info to ensure that you receive an iron fixture option that fits your space. You can call me for recommendations as I can help you to make the correct choice. Vaulted ceilings are no problem. Short ceilings may require a semi-flush mount version of Contemporary Swirl—and it’s lovely!

Shipping

All of my chandeliers are professionally packed and fully insured. They require Signature Confirmation due to the value of my work, so someone must be able to sign to receive. I will carefully coordinate that with you. Once a box is packed and checked into UPS shipping system, you will have an estimated delivery date that you can modify from your tracking link. If dates don’t work, then you can arrange to have UPS hold your chandelier at a local hub for pick-up at your convenience.

I do require that the box/s be opened and that the glass be checked on within a few days of arrival. We have a very low incident rate, about 3% which is as good as it can get with glass…and when anything happens, my people take care if the claim for you.

You must save ALL boxing/packing until fully installed for insurance purposes. Thank YOU!

Care of Glass

Caring for one of my reverse hand painted glass chandeliers is relatively simple. The inside of the glass bowl can be wiped out gently with a soft micro-fiber cloth like the one you use on your computer screen. This will only need to be done occasionally. Please do not use a chemical glass cleaner in inside of glass—you wouldn’t use chemical cleaners on a fine painting on your wall. My chandeliers are painted on the inside in reverse. And when in doubt, feel free to call!

Moving your Floravita Chandelier to a new home?

If you are in doubt of how to transport your chandelier, please give me a quick call. I can best suggest how to wrap and transport based on your circumstance. You will definitely want to supervise when your chandelier is being taken down to ensure that parts are not lost. I can also re-send to you the instruction sheets that you originally received with your chandelier as that will list the parts that you need to wrap together to keep track. I’ve had clients leave their fine painted chandelier to the care of movers and moving is hectic, things happen. I’ve had clients lose parts in the process of moving. Nobody will care for your work of art like you will. In fact, if you can transport your fine chandelier personally that is recommended. I can help recommend who to contact to pack.

If you think you might move to a new home at a future date—and everyone does take my chandeliers with them, they don’t part with them—you should try to leave some of that extra long wiring that I send with your fixture wound up neatly up inside the box in the ceiling. You should tell your electrician to try to keep some of this wire in case your next installation location has a taller ceiling and that will stop them from cutting your wire short.

For general questions about installation, I can connect you with my husband who is a licensed electrician—yes, I know, very handy for me! Otherwise, your electrician or contractor will know how to re-install your beautiful chandelier in your new home.
