At Stage Left Lux we love being able to bring old unloved light fittings back to life, by repairing and restoring them back to their former glory.

We were recently contacted by a customer who had this old chandelier, it had been up their loft for years and was broken and the owner of it thought it was beyond repair. 

The customer found us online, we asked the customer to send us some photographs of the light fitting so we could assess if it was fixable and what needed to be done to bring it back to life. 

Discussing and agreeing repairs and what needed to be done

The customer brought the chandelier to us at our Derby-based workshop. 

 

We discussed ideas for it, showed the customer various options for different types of bulb holder and plans for the repairs.  

The customer wanted to keep it as original as possible, for the chandelier to be cleaned and repaired, but to keep some of the original patina to show it's age.

Dismantling & cleaning

The chandelier was carefully dismantled into around 40 individual parts.

Each piece was carefully cleaned, polished and buffed. 

Ensuring that the grime was removed but enough patina was retained to ensure that it showed some age.

Re-assembly and rewiring

The chandelier arms were fitted with new electrical cable and chandelier was reassembled. 

Piece by piece the chandelier was put back together,  I took lots of photos before taking it to bits to reference to ensure it was put back together the correct way!

Six new BC22 bayonet cap bulb holders were fitted.

Electrical testing

After rewiring the chandelier was fully tested for electrical safety and to ensure it was working correctly. 

 

New  fittings

Brand new hanging chain was fitted in a brass colour in-keeping with the colour of the chandelier along with a new hanging hook ceiling rose to enable the chandelier to be safely fitted to the ceiling.
