The Woolworths Chandelier within Oxburgh Hall is a fine example of a 19th century cut glass chandelier. The frame is gilt brass hung with 1,957 individual pieces of cut glass. It was originally candlelit and it was electrified sometime in the 20th century. It was brought to Oxburgh in 1985.

The sheer size of this chandelier was impressive. It would be resting on the floor if hung from a normal ceiling height! Many thanks for your time David :) Liz
