New Haven Museum Bohemian Crystal Chandeliers Restoration

Project Info

Project Description

Grand Light was given the task of restoring two large Bohemian crystal chandeliers from the New Haven Museum and Historical Society. The two 16-light custom chandeliers were manufactured in the country formerly known as Czechoslovakia and were installed when the building was built. The chandeliers’ frames were silver plated, and in need of hand polishing. The crystal arms had experienced significant deterioration of the compound supporting the arms to the frame. All metal surfaces of the chandeliers were polished and a UV resistant protective top coat was applied. All mechanical components were inspected and repaired as required, and all existing electrical components were replaced with UL listed products, rewired, and hi-pot tested. Crystals were replaced as appropriate. Missing components were fabricated to closely match the originals.
