3-Light Sheffield Chandelier, c1910

Item #R2385

Description

Bold and fresh when first introduced by American lighting manufacturers around 1900, the graceful lines and distinctive shell-like ribbing of the Sheffield style were meant to evoke the work of expert colonial metalsmiths. This antique is not only a lovely example of Sheffield design, but also of a transitional moment in lighting history. This chandelier had gas-fueled burners facing up (which we've now capped off) and electric lights facing down.

When electric lighting first came on the scene in the late 1800s, many lighting companies (and homeowners) were reluctant to transition fully to the new technology. Hence, fixtures of the day were designed to use both gas and electricity. Gas would be used for day-to-day lighting needs, and electric was used to impress the neighbors.
