Victorian Ceiling Lights
The Victorians were seduced by light throughout their queen’s reign. At the beginning of the 19th century, in the decades before Victoria took to the throne, buildings and streets alike were, in the main, illuminated by candle light. By the time the iconic royal died and the baton of ruler was handed to her son Edward in 1901, both gas and electricity were commonplace lighting sources and the way domestic spaces were used and enjoyed had been completely changed by innovations in the field. In celebration of the new lighting technologies made available to them, designers created a huge array of stunning Victorian ceiling lights.
