Our Whitaker Series
We are quite known for our Gas-light Reproduction collection of chandeliers and sconces, and one of our most popular is the Whitaker collection.
The first in the series of Whitaker chandeliers was created by Mr. King in the 1980's during the boom of popularity of Victorian homes. He wanted something in our line of reproduction chandeliers that wasn't quite so ornate but yet still evoked the sense of grandeur that the Victorian age epitomized.
The old Whitaker 6 differs a tiny bit from the new (graduated crystal instead of baguettes stretching to the top).
As the chandelier grew popular, Mr. King introduced new version, including this lovely 4 armed version with solid brass cast eagles adorning the band.
The eagles, though no longer included on the design, are still available to use on any of the Whitakers, and we welcome your inquiry.
Although the collection was designed in the spirit of Victoriana, it looks beautiful in modern rooms with a warm decor - paneling, dark or rich colors... and just about anywhere!
If you find that the Whitaker chandeliers are the perfect choice for your home, consider a set of scones to flank your favorite painting, mirror or piece of furniture.
