Today's beautiful chandelier pieces are far removed from the ancient candle holders of the medieval castle. Such usefulness had a purpose in the age of knights and feudal vassals; today's chandeliers communicate an entire different message, "art, prestige and a symbol of wealth and status". Whether traditional or contemporary, the chandelier light illuminates today's' more social and gregarious homeowner. Our European ancestors would never have imagined the framework of the chandelier would distinguish entire rooms, separate floor plans, and offer beauty all while providing the warmth and beauty of light.
This month the 2,500 pound chandelier that consists of 33,000 crystals was lowered from the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee for its annual cleaning. The chandelier is the centerpiece of the theatre and visitors are often more captivated by it than by whatever performance is going on at the theater. According to Sandra Wickler, one of the volunteers cleaning the chandelier who also serves as an usher, "It's amazing. When I usher here, the people who come in who have been here just go 'wow,' and they're snapping [cameras] away, and I'm like 'yes!'" Several volunteers are helping to clean the chandelier by polishing each of the 33,000 crystals by hand. Those volunteering for the two-day cleaning project each year say that they enjoy making the chandelier shine as it was intended to.
