Chandelier model Brink was designed in 1953 after old 17th and 18th century models by Egbert Brink, founder of Brink & van Keulen. They are chandeliers for large spaces, they hang mainly in churches. These chandeliers have hollow arms for electrical wiring.
The family business Brink & van Keulen has passed on, all the knowledge and skills for making and restoring brass chandeliers to three generations. It all started with Egbert Brink and Marinus Leendert van Keulen after the Second World War. Together with brother Anton Brink, who was already a foundryman, the company started specializing in the production of brass chandeliers. A powerful impetus for the production of replicas of old Dutch crowns, and the restoration of old crowns was given by Mr Canneman, chief architect at the Rijksdienst voor Monumentenzorg. Repeatedly he was confronted with the lack of knowledge and skills of the old yellow casting craft during restorations. At his request, the firm started specializing in this craft in 1950. In 1964 a public limited company was finally founded.
