- The origin of birdcage chandeliers can be traced back to Europe, particularly to France during the 18th century. This style of chandelier was influenced by the ornate and elaborate designs of the Rococo period. The Rococo style, characterised by asymmetry, ornate decoration, and a focus on curves and natural forms, was prevalent in European art and design during the 18th century. A birdcage chandelier is a type of lighting fixture designed in the shape of a birdcage. This distinctive chandelier style often features an open framework resembling the structure of a birdcage, and it is typically used to hold and display light sources.
