In the 1700s, Venetian glass masters produced chandeliers featuring glass arms. This was a new style of chandelier, but one which is now commonly associated with the chandelier shape. In 1720 in the United Kingdom, glass chandeliers were made in the Dutch brassball stem style. It was in the 18th century that chandeliers got their name chandelier is the French word for candlestick, which was soon adopted by England and all over the world as an appropriate description for suspended lights featuring arms.
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.
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.
