French Empire Crystal Chandeliers – French Empire Crystal Chandeliers Typically at the bottom of the lamp bucks or beads are strung into a bag shape. From the top of the lamp, the crown, beaded necklaces also walk to the ring to which the bag is mounted. Around the ring were originally attached candle holders. Candles were replaced by light bulbs and light bulbs were installed in the lamp on introduction of electricity.
For restoration and cleaning French empire crystal chandeliers, all our lamps are thoroughly cleaned and restored where necessary. French Empire Crystal Chandeliers dismantled and mostly equipped with new wiring and fittings. This is because the risk of a short circuit in wiring, sometimes covered with dust, is great. Also, wiring plastic is sometimes very dry and hardened so the risk of wire breakage is high. Old fittings we replaced if they are in poor condition.

Next steps, all the icicles are removed from the French empire crystal chandeliers and washed in soapy water and dried by hand. This gives the best results. Old rusty wires are replaced by new “blackened” brass wires. Thereafter, the icicles are mounted again. The chandelier frame is usually made of brass, bronze or iron, or may not be gold-plated. We make it clean so that dirt, nicotine and grease off, but do not brush the frame. The old patina is retained so. Every lamp, depending on the state, undergoes such treatment of a few hours can take up to several days. This is a lot of work, but necessary, because the brilliance of a chandelier is at its best when it is clean. Details as damaged icicles and rusty or messy wires often fall into the shop not, but as the chandelier to hang in your home. A chandelier attracts attention and should also be in good condition. In addition, we restored no bulbs to third parties.
