How do you recognize an Old Dutch chandelier? Read more about the characteristics of this type of chandelier below.
An important feature of a Dutch chandelier is the shiny large sphere on the underside of the stem. By means of the shiny sphere the (candle) light is reflected. The arms of the Dutch chandelier are deeply sagging and S-shaped.
The arms are S-shaped so that the candlelight comes out at the height of the sphere. As a result, the (candlelight) reflects optimally. In most cases the Dutch chandelier ends with a drop or teat. See below a picture of the construction of a typical Old Dutch crocodile chandelier.
Brink & van Keulen 1646 B.V. Originally a family business, Brink & van Keulen maintains the 17th century foundry craft by producing the highest quality copper chandeliers. Through centuries-old knowledge transfer, Brink & van Keulen has taken an important role in the preservation of the foundry craft. Brink & van Keulen is specialized in the field of production, restoration, valuation and mediation of old Dutch copper chandeliers.
Brink & van Keulen still practises this craft exactly as it used to. Original moulds from that time are used to make the copper parts. Casting is also still done in the traditional way: in Brussels earth, a greasy type of sand. Read more
