Posted by Beauchampantiques on July 16th, 2013

Antique pieces are sterling relics of the past. They are testimony to a majestic culture of forgotten times. An antique chandelier is a beautiful addition to any home and fits smoothly with the decor. Both modern and period interiors look glamorous with vintage items like lamps, mirrors and cutlery. An antique wardrobe you buy at an auction today or from a reputed online antique dealer might have adorned the home of a French King or an Austrian princess.  An antique clock in ebony, walnut or mahogany was a common possession of 18th and 19th century families.

Vintage chandeliers, in perfect, working condition, are sourced from the world over. Europe is a leading provider of period lights and European chandeliers come with diverse chandelier features. Brass is the most common material for making an antique chandelier. 6 to 12 arm chandeliers were used to light up traditional homes and can still be found in modern homes with a vintage decor. Wrought iron chandeliers look stunning with exquisite finishes. For making the arms, hooks and light stands, cast bronze and wood were also popular. Although these are slightly on the heavier side, metal arms reflect light, better.

Like an antique wardrobe which is the centre of attraction in any room, chandeliers too give a facelift to any ordinary indoor. Expansive dining rooms, large ball rooms, stylish living rooms and even bedrooms can be decorated with the right chandelier. Finest chandelier lights from 18th and 19th century bring to life the old world charm. Some of the grandest vintage lights belong to royal families and statesmen. France, Italy, Austria, Vienna, Germany, China, UK and USA are hot spots for finding vintage chandeliers in excellent, working condition. An occasional Louis XV or Napoleon age chandelier instantly adds high glamour to your home or office. 

With the availability of classic pieces online, buyers are spoilt for choice. Antique chandeliers with authentic glass and crystal lights are extremely popular due to their sheer beauty. Stunning crystal chains, wreathes, and vines lend a fairytale charm to any chandelier. Besides, they lit up any space better, whether it uses a single light or is shaped like a giant crystal balloon.

Among antique pieces, just as it is necessary to choose a genuine antique cock, it is essential to buy your chandelier from a genuine online antique dealer. Reputed antique collection sellers showcase their collection on their website with complete details and prices of antique merchandise.
