The chandelier was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and comes from a manor house in East Holstein. His palmette ornamentation is reminiscent of the gilded window grilles of Jenisch House. The inspiration for this was the pilaster capital of the Temple of Apollo in Didyma, or the geison of the Athena Temple in Priene.
