Ideals of freedom and self-rule shape neoclassic design. 18th century architects revived ancient Greek forms to give democracy its own symbolic style. Marietta’s distinct features display this spirit of design. Clustered candlesticks glow inside the blown glass. A dentil cornice crowns the pendant, while delicate rosettes decorate the junctions. Acanthus leafs flank the fixture’s base, culminating in a pineapple finial—the new-world symbol of hospitality and welcome.
