In 1618, the metal lamp holder was hung with egg-shaped and splash pendants made of natural crystal.
In 1673, natural crystals were expensive and their quality was difficult to guarantee. Therefore, imitation of natural crystals began to sprout with the idea of excellent glass for crystal lighting. The world’s first artificial crystal lighting was created in 1673 by French Italian Bernardo Perotto. This light still exists in the museum.
In 1687, French emperor Louis XIV imported a series of natural crystal/quartz crystal lamps from Italy and installed them in the Palace of Versailles. Because this matter is clearly recorded in the inventory records, therefore, we often use this palace as the source of crystal lamps.
In 1699 Louis XIV decided in the same year to grant Mr. M.Bertin a patent for the production of die-casting glass instead of natural quartz as pendant for crystal lamps.
Crystal pendants and accessories for the 1800 crystal lamps were born in Italy and France due to demand. But in the 17th to 18th centuries, Bohemia dominated the crystal lighting pendant accessories market with its low price, high quality and high yield. Crystal lights have also become popular.
