Gasoliers are chandeliers with gas burners rather than light bulbs or candles. In the mid-19th century, as gas lighting became more available, ceiling fixtures with arms called gasoliers (a blending of gas and chandelier) were produced. With the appearance of electric light in the 1890's, some chandeliers used both gas and electricity. Soon after as electricity became more available and dependable, gasoliers were often converted to electric-only chandeliers. These were called electroliers, following the same idea.
