Description : This artefact is chandelier from the St. James the Apostle Anglican Church in Battle Harbour. It is made of cast iron and was designed to burn oil. The chandelier was constructed to hang from the ceiling and was affixed by way of an ornate concaved disk through which bolts were threaded. Stemming from this disk is a long post that forms the main body of the chandelier, ending in a decorative egg corn shaped terminal. Halfway down the post on each side are two decorative 'J' shaped arms, each curving up to end in a floral decorated basin. The basin forms the base for the flame on top of which sat the glass cylinder. There are two large springs that run the length of the main post. Both springs attach to the decorative top disk and attach as separate points on the chandelier. One attaches to the main body while the other attaches to one of the decorative arms.
Commentaires : The establishment of a church in Battle Harbour is the direct result of the actions of Anglican Bishop Edward Field in response to a trip he made to the Labrador Coast in 1847. Although Battle Harbour's permanent population numbered in the hundreds, and swelled to the thousands in the spring with the arrival of the livyers, the town could not afford the services of a resident clergyman. Field petitioned the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, a missionary organization formed in 1701 to provide clergymen to areas of the British Empire that were unable to afford one. The Society agreed to Field's request and had a man in place in Battle Harbour by 1850. Started in 1852 the St. James the Apostle church, designed by William Grey, was completed in 1857. The wooden church, still in existence today due to the conservation efforts of the Battle Harbour Trust, has been described as the oldest non-Moravian church in Labrador.
Fonctions : This oil-fuelled chandelier hung in the St. James the Apostle Anglican Church in Battle Harbour until the introduction of electricity.
