Ecclesiastical Chandeliers

The use of ecclesiastical chandeliers began during the Byzantine period with the name "polycandelon", and their original source of light was candles. Later, during the Middle Ages, chandeliers were used in churches, synagogues, and the houses of aristocrats.

These large metal structures still decorate the interior of Holy Temples and, with their multiple lights, provide abundant lighting.

In our collection, you will find ecclesiastical chandeliers in Byzantine and Mount Athos designs made by our experienced craftsmen. All chandeliers are gilded and varnished with a special technique to prevent damage. They are decorated either with crystals or with a large metallic ring bearing the icons of saints.
