Light Fixture Restorations
Rialto Square Theater, Joliet, IL

Lumenelle began the process of restoring 32 chandeliers and light fixtures (right) at the historic Rialto Square Theater on June 28, 2010. The restoration involves the removal and cleaning of every individual piece of crystal. All sockets and wiring is also replaced.

Restoration of the last chandelier, the "Duchess" (left), began on August 16 and was completed on August 26, 2010

The Duchess, weighing 2.5 tons with 250 lights, is considered one of the largest crystal chandeliers in the United States.

Lumenelle In The Media
We have tried keep up with hyperlinks to written web articles and videos featuring Lumenelle's historic restoration work on external media/news sites. That has pretty much become pretty much an impossible task. To prevent dead links on the Lumenelle website, we will no longer publish links to media sites. Lumenelle has an archive of news articles featuring Lumenelle and videos of our projects. Please contact us and we will provide you with reprints.

Artifact Restoration
At Lumenelle, we believe that artifacts that are the physical embodiment of the advances in electric/electronic, mechanical, and steam technology represent or "historic fabric" as much as historic buildings and structures.
Over the years, we have been asked many times if Lumenelle restores historic artifacts other than light fixtures. We can restore many vintage electric and electronic artifacts. If we can't, we may be able to help you find someone. Contact us.
But we have gone one step further, we have created a 'Community' called Vintage Tech on Facebook.
A colorful mosaic of electrical, mechanical, steam technology from a bygone era
and the golden age of industrial design.
We encourage you to ask questions about the artifacts that you see and also post your own vintage tech items.
If you have any general questions regarding historic lighting restoration, please continue to contact us directly at Lumenelle.
