Chandeliers and Lanterns

The streets of Damascus Old City were continuously lit since the Mamluk Period in the 13th century, when public servants used to fire up and maintain oil sconces on the streets of the Old City.

The art of making chandeliers and lanterns developed in Damascus from these early sconces’ days and gradually advanced into the richly decorated beaded, brass, glass and crystal chandeliers and lanterns that the city is known for today.
