This chandelier is patterned after one on display in the
Tap Room of Clinton Inn at Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan.
Primarily used to illuminate churches, taverns, and other public
meeting places, chandeliers were seldom used in private homes
except those of the wealthy. While brass and glass chandeliers
were imported, those made of tinplate or tinplate and wood were
usually crafted in this country.
A chandelier using five or six candles gives off a surprising
amount of light and exudes a warmth, a touch of elegance and
an atmosphere that is impossible to match with an electrified
chandelier. If more light is required, consider using other sources
of subdued artificial lighting in the room or from adjacent rooms.
