Sixteen-Arm Chandelier

c. 1625-1650 On view in Room 1

The brass chandelier in the middle of the hall was probably cast in Amsterdam, which was the centre of brass founding at the time. It is one of the largest chandeliers made in the seventeenth century and one of the oldest surviving examples. It consists of many separate parts that are assembled like a kit. Splendid chandeliers like this were not made for ordinary houses but for large buildings like churches and palaces.
