The dining room has a glass chandelier
The house had no electricity, of course...
and the hallways were illuminated be candles.
Another chandelier in a bedroom.
The walls had small carved pedestals where candlesticks could be placed,
...or sconces on them.
The ballroom was illuminated by three glass chandeliers,
and candlestick holders on pedestals.
At the cabinet maker's shop, we saw drawings for chandeliers,
and single candlesticks,
as well as an elaborately carved sconce.
Even though these lovely fixtures cast the past in a gentle glow, I am still very happy we have electricity in our lives. It would be hard to blog by candlelight.
