In fact, there are old rot iron chandeliers that the lighting itself is part of the style. There were many chandeliers made back in the turn of the century to create a desired shadow displayed on the walls and the floor of the room that it was placed in. Legend has it that Edison created a chandelier made entirely of mirrors, and it gave off so much light that it allowed the doctor to perform surgery on his Edisons mother. Where the story is true or not, chandeliers have become more and more brilliant at time has worn on. As chandeliers have become more modern, the way they show off their light has also become more modern.
In cases where the ceiling is not high enough, it is possible to shorten the chain. The chain can be shortened up to the length of one link which is necessary for joining the hanger and the body of the chandelier together. Should such a substantial shortening be insufficient, a different type of chandelier should be purchased. If the chandelier has already been delivered and you need a longer chain, it has to be ordered in the required length along with the flex, which should be changed as well because its length is insufficient as well.
In case of large chandeliers, their weight plays an important part. It is important to find out where and to what ceiling construction the chandelier will be installed or otherwise attached. You should take into consideration that an 18arm chandelier, for example, can weigh up to 17kilos, and such a weight will be attached to one point on your ceiling. In the case of some especially large chandeliers, the construction of the ceiling should be assessed by a structural engineer. If you wish to clean the entire chandelier, it is not necessary nowadays to dismantle the whole chandelier, dust various parts in soapy water, dry them carefully and return back all the parts to their places.
Black Chandeliers: These are by and large manufactured in China and Czech Republic. They are preferred by people because of the contrast they exhibit with the white lights. They are made of black crystals, glasses and wrought iron and go well with vintage style of settings and interior decorations. The earliest genuine chandelier known was created in 1167 A.D for Frederick I, the King of Germany and the Holy Roman Empire. During the eight and a half centuries since then, the history of the chandelier spans many exciting and rapid changes in styles and fashion, but also saw many technological changes as the industrial world revolutionised, bringing with it the invention of candles and wicks, oil fuels, and most importantly, the invention of the electric light bulb.
Crystals in chandeliers were originally used to help reflect and spread the light. Crystal glass was found to be the best material for this purpose. Into the 19th century, roped pendants and hanging drops were added to chandelier designs. With the discovery and use of electricity, the antique chandelier has of course moved with the times, and now incorporates electric or gas lighting. Candlelit chandeliers are still available, however, and can add some wonderful unique elegance and personality in the lighting of your home.
