Armed Mercury Ball Pendants

Posted on March 9, 2016

In several of his country houses and extensively in New Delhi, Lutyens used a more traditional version of the Mercury Ball, cradling it in an armed chandelier. We have found examples of this fitting with both three, six and eight arms and, though usually found in metal – often silver plate – we have also seen it in painted timber. We are happy to explore all permutations and finishes.
