Canneman is the name of a former chief architect of the National Trust for Historic Buildings who was concerned about the fate of old chandeliers. He advised Brink & van Keulen and recommended their methods for maintenance and restoration.
In the 17th century the old-Dutch crown and accompanying ball made their appearance. The Dutch chandelier with the S-shaped arms are very characteristic. They do not protrude sideways anymore, but descend. The workmanship of the chandelier looks smooth and has few segments. Arms and scrolls of the 17th century can be shaped like a stylized dolphin or snake. In the beginning of the 17th century the stem loses weight and its task is taken over by the weight of the ball. The disappearance of the figures also meant that the design of the suspension better matched that of the crown. In the 17th century the wealthy bourgeoisie also bought this chandelier. Not only for practical reasons but also for aesthetic reasons.
