The movers packed the chandelier like they always do ” wrong”. They hung the chandelier in box fully assembled . You must take the arms off a chandelier before shipping. I have repaired hundreds of arms .
The antique glass chandelier arm will be as strong as new after it is repaired . When photographed on black you can see the repair if you look close . When installed back on the chandelier the repair will be very hard to find.
