Well, I suppose there may be just a little bit of a Duke of Wellington inspiration, too . . .

Once we got the candelabra to Darlington House, we saw that they were filthy dirty, as they like to say in the trade. A cleaning was in order.
So, for those of you who do not have a chandelier in your dining room, as we do not at Darlington House, I encourage you to consider tall candelabra. It's almost like chandeliers on stands.
