This month the 2,500 pound chandelier that consists of 33,000 crystals was lowered from the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee for its annual cleaning. The chandelier is the centerpiece of the theatre and visitors are often more captivated by it than by whatever performance is going on at the theater. According to Sandra Wickler, one of the volunteers cleaning the chandelier who also serves as an usher, "It's amazing. When I usher here, the people who come in who have been here just go 'wow,' and they're snapping [cameras] away, and I'm like 'yes!'" Several volunteers are helping to clean the chandelier by polishing each of the 33,000 crystals by hand. Those volunteering for the two-day cleaning project each year say that they enjoy making the chandelier shine as it was intended to.
The traditional chandeliers need candle lights or luminous lights for illumination. They even have yellow colored illumination. On the other hand, with the modern chandeliers, you will find LED bulbs or fluorescent lights that give bright and beautiful lightings. Blowing or lighting chandeliers with candle lights are not that easy to maintain. The modern chandeliers come with electric bulbs, which are pretty similar in design of the ones with candle lights.
Although the first hand forged iron chandeliers were simple in design, they played a vital role in the making of the most stylish chandeliers of the future. The initial design was simple. Heavy iron chandeliers were fitted with a few candles and heaved up to the ceiling with metallic chains. Once people started using these chandeliers that only provided light, many designers began to enhance the design of the chandeliers. Luxurious people and royalties demanded beautiful handcrafted chandeliers that could brighten up their homes. The simple candle chandeliers were effectively transformed into striking and gorgeous iron chandeliers. Numerous different designs began to surface as the society advanced. With time, castles and luxurious forts started sporting hand forged iron chandeliers. These chandeliers were made from the finest materials to give a classy look.
Candles or light bulbs are placed on holders along the length or end of each arm. They are usually enclosed in covers with colorful tints or prints. Some even have fake wax dropping to give them that authentic candle holder feel.
