The Purpose Of Chandeliers
In the older times, they were mostly used for the lightening purposes. As there was no concept of electricity, they were used to hold the candles for lightening mostly the churches and the abbeys. Even after the introduction of gas and the electricity, their basic purpose remains the same i.e. illuminating the room. But as the glassmakers improved the glass cutting and molding techniques, they emphasis has been converted to decoration. Since the 20th century, these chandeliers are mostly used to add to the beauty of the house. These have become more of an art piece rather than the illuminative item.
