FAQ

  • What is the color of the ceiling plate and chain?
  • We offer rustic bronze or black. Please specify if you have a preference. The ceiling plate is standard fit.

  • How do I know how big of a chandelier I need?
  • To determine the best size of chandelier for a given space; add the width and and length of room in feet and convert to inches (for example, if the room is 15′ x 15′ (16 + 16 = 30), the chandelier should be 30″Diameter. For height, 8 – 10 feet off the floor to the bottom of the chandelier is best, so there is proper of clearance below. For a dining room installation the size of the table should be taken into consideration – the chandelier should not overwhelm the table, i.e. be wider than the table itself. For standard height ceilings (8′) hang the fixture 30″ above table; adding 3″ per foot of height over and above that (10 ft ceiling = 36″ space from table top to bottom of fixture).

  • What is the difference between types of antler?
  • a. White Tail Deer are native to North America. Their antlers are dense and grow in a letter “C” curve. They are usually paler in color. Chandeliers made with white tail will be thick and heavy. These antlers are ideally suited for chandeliers under 30″ with some possible exceptions. The average antler length is about 1 foot so making large chandeliers with them is impractical as many antlers are needed; it can become expensive.

    b. Mule Deer antlers are the most common deer antlers you will see in North America. They are brown in color. They have a slight curve in them but are straighter than white tail. The average length is about 2 feet. Chandeliers can be built to much larger sizes with mule deer antlers.

    c. Fallow Deer antlers are a European import from Spain. They are very dark brown in color and are palmated. Many people think of them as small moose antlers. Their deep rich color and flowing palmation make a very elegant piece. Per pound, they are the most expensive antlers. Average length is about 2.5 feet.

    d. Elk antlers are commonly used for chandeliers. They are brownish red in color and are long and straight. They range in size from about 2.5 feet to 5 feet long. A great antler for large chandeliers. North American Native.

    e. Moose antlers are very thick. They are naturally large, dark brown antlers. A large moose antler can be about 3 foot by 3 foot in size. This makes very large chandeliers. North American Native.
