Wagon Wheel Chandeliers Information and History
Wagon Wheel Chandeliers Information, Wagon Wheel Chandeliers or Wagon Wheel Lighting has been around for centuries. No one knows for sure who the first person was that decided to bring more light into their life by placing a large number of candles on a wagon wheel and suspending the wagon wheel high above the room. It might not have been out of the need for more light, it could very easily have been an artistic attempt. We will never know for sure, however, since that day human kind has found many ways to express themselves through wagon wheel chandeliers or wagon wheel lighting.
If you can think of it, someone has placed it on a wagon wheel chandelier, from stuffed animals, antlers, horse shoes, metal art, to guns and knives. The individualism is shown in the wide variety of wagon wheel chandeliers that one can find today and the list appears to be getting longer, there is even a Mason jar wagon wheel chandelier.
Original American Wagon Wheel Chandelier or Wagon Wheel Lighting
The original American Wagon Wheel Chandelier or Wagon Wheel Lighting was originally the same concept as that of the medieval castles of Europe, tie a rope to a Wagon Wheel, run the rope up through a pulley or eyelet, then run the rope to the wall so that the wagon wheel chandelier could be lowered, light the candles pull the wagon wheel chandelier back up to the height you wanted and tie off the rope to the wall. I mean after all, everyone had an old wagon wheel that could not be used for anything else; lets hang it from the ceiling and put candles on it.
With the invention of lanterns and oil lamps, these devises were used to replace the candles; however, the chandelier was still lowered and raised in the same manner as it was when the candles were used, the lanterns and oil lamps still had to be lit at night. When electricity became available, the lanterns and oil lamps were replaced with electric lights and the rope was no longer needed and was replaced with chains to hang the chandelier in a permanent position.
