Lighting during the Victorian period was primarily from gas. We have some lovely reproduction overhead gasoliers that are true to the era.  Then guess who came along? None other than Thomas Edison who invented the incandescent light bulb in 1879, which, by the way, we carry reproductions of.  Then beautiful electric lighting began to show up in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of gorgeous lights and lamps. Many of the glass shades used are are curved or have scallops on the edges. Some have gorgeous designs etched into the glass for added charm. Some of the chandeliers have complimenting wall sconces. They have the high style majestic dangling crystals attached. These cast beautiful shadows and rainbows upon your walls when the sun is directed threw them. The light shimmering through them is truly brilliant. Many are constructed of heavy duty solid brass that has an aged brass finish. Your family and friends will fell like they have stepped back in time.

Imagine a parlor with the beautiful Paramount Theater chandelier suspended from the ceiling. Compliments are sure to flow.
