The Birth Of The Modern Chandelier

In the early 15th century chandeliers were found in large and small gathering spaces, those usually consisted of churches, Inns and great halls. This kind of chandelier were created using wood and wax candles, both were usually created in the same home or by a candle maker and a blacksmith. The blacksmith used wrought iron pegs in the end of the wooden cross to hold the wax candles. The slim line candles we have today are much smaller than those pertaining to the 15th century. Not only smaller, but they are also a lot more varied AND stylish!
