The Napoleonic Camel Saddle Chandelier

Four years ago in a flea market I bought this strange thing a Napoleonic Camel Saddle used in the French Egyptian War by the Dromedary division. I thought I would use it to make a coffee table but realising how rare it was I didn't have the heart to cut it up. It sat in my attic for a while then went to auction and wasn't sold. I had the idea of making it into a chandelier in the oldest part of my house with a vaulted ceiling. We knew we could only do it with a scaffold. So finally the reimagined Camel Saddle Chandelier has a new home and it won't be going anywhere! I love it's uniqueness. Upside down hanging on painted chains and painted twist flex to blend into the age of the saddle. and finished with dimmable globes, it's what reclaim is all about.
