THE CARE AND CONSERVATION OF GLASS CHANDELIERS
JULIE A. REILLY, & MARTIN MORTIMER
A well-assembled, clean, properly hung (unwired) glass chandelier can be breathtaking in its simplicity or in its elaborate ostentation. Suitable care and maintenance of these large, heavy, and extremely complex objects is difficult, but very rewarding. We hope that this article will encourage conservators to help owners, collectors, and cultural institutions to undertake the proper care of the chandeliers and other lighting devices in their custody.
