Need help Identifying Antique Chandelier?

Can anybody help me identify this Chandelier? I found it in my Aunts garage after she passed. She and my Uncle were avid collectors of antiques. Anyways, this has been bugging me and I would love it if anyone here might have some idea as to what type of Chandelier this is. Thanks!!

Appears to be copper and caramel slag in the arts and crafts style....about 1900 to 1915.

In the style of Arts & Crafts, but I do not believe it to be old. The bulb holders are new, the shade holders are of a newer type, the chain is newer type, the shades are not of the quality of the period.

Thanks! That was really helpful. So is this worth anything? Just curious.

If I was to sell this, would Ebay be the best option? I haven't sold any antiques on Ebay before but I was just wondering. The thing with Antiques is they are so broad, I am learning so much lately it gets pretty overwhelming. Appreciate any advice on value and ways to sell this.

Put an ad in your local paper.....and I DO believe it dates from about 1910.
If you go the eBay route you will have to charge a lot to ship.
Craig's list is another option.
