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.

In fact glassmakers studied for years learning often from their fathers and older masters to be able to mix the ingredients just right at a time when the laws of chemistry were not even formulated time the process well work skillfully with primitive instruments and create precise shapes that were beautiful and desirable but useful as well.

People understood very early that surrounding a source of light with glass allows the light to disperse in the optimal manner and creates a wonderful warm ambiance while allowing for the most effective use of light.
