Between the 11th and the 15th century, the Flemish town of Dimant became famous for its chandelier brass works, and in the 16th century the Dutch brass ball chandelier became popular. Over the next couple of centuries, chandeliers became popular, particularly for the very wealthy and royals. The chandeliers changed in many ways, shapes and sizes as technology and fashion modernised and transformed. In the 17th century, the first chandeliers featuring rock crystals were manufactured. These chandeliers were the first of the more extravagant and decorative chandeliers.
The production and development of chandeliers slowed down until the 19th century, when multiple revivals began all across Europe. During the Second Empire in France, they created historicizing styles. By the end of the 19th century, gas lighting was becoming increasingly available, and this marked a change in the technological style of chandeliers. In the modern era, chandeliers have been made in a collection of styles, from large decorative chandeliers used in highclass restaurants to small colourful ones especially for children.
They soon began to find their way into some of the more expensive mansions and private homes in this country and abroad and have been around ever since. The industrial revolution provided the impetus for mass production of this once exclusive lighting fixture and today, chandeliers can be found in many homes and in any number of rooms in these homes. One of the major appeals of the chandelier is the drama it creates. It automatically lends character and a somewhat regal atmosphere to an otherwise plain room.
