Chandelier, light crown, luster, corona or candle crown: various names for a ceiling lamp with multiple arms or a lamp with a decorative function. Antique Style Web Store has a large collection of (crystal) chandeliers which contains a suitable lamp for everyone.
Chandeliers are expected to be seen in churches, castles, mansions, hotels, shops, historical houses and palaces, but these days they can also be hung in every home.
A more sober (without any decorations) Dutch (or Flemish) chandelier with a low hung ball has been familiar sight in churches ever since the 15th century.
The Bohemian chandelier (loved by Maria Theresia, empress of Austria) and the less frivolous ‘bag’ chandeliers originated in the middle of the 18th century. The transparent crystals create a brilliant light. When electricity was introduced, candles were replaced by incandescent lamps (1879).
The French chandelier in the Louis Seize style with its floral strings on vases is angular and exuberant at the same time. This lamp became popular (again) around 1900. Cut glass reflects the light.
Glass icicles, floral shapes, acanthus leaves, crystals, twinkles, bronze/brass fittings and lyre shapes are key words when it comes to creating a super romantic atmosphere. Order online now!
