While solid-brass reproduction chandeliers can cost $6,000 or more, simpler period reproductions sell for a tenth as much.Among the most authentic for low-ceilinged colonial rooms are turned-wood chandeliers with graceful, curving metal arms."They don't take up a lot of visual space, because they're so airy," says Scofield, who recommends double- or triple-tiered curved-arm fixtures for larger rooms and rooms with higher ceilings.Since the shape and style of the central shaft on many colonial fixtures is based on elements of furniture turnings, use period furniture or architectural elements in your house, such as a moulding profile or a newel post, as a guide to the selection of a compatible fixtures.Supplement the main fixtures with sconces, which were usually installed in pairs.Even though half a dozen candles would have been considered a dazzling display at a colonial dinner, most experts recommend using higher wattage bulbs combined with a dimmer switch to vary light levels.Transitional (1780-1850)For all but the grandest houses, the period between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars is considered something of a no-man's land for formal lighting.That's because it's almost impossible to find antique Argand burners, the most popular fixtures between 1800 and 1860.
