The appellation “Gatchina” is also rightly applied to those charming lamps of which there were so many in the palace. These lamps were similar to bells. They were both very small - holding just one candle - and large like bells, decorated with crystal garlands and reminiscent of chandeliers. These lamps were usually placed in the smaller rooms, for example in the apartments of Paul I and of Maria Fedorovna, and also in the connecting rooms and corridors, and on the stairs, where, because of the constant movement of air, the crystal garlands would swing and produce a soft melodious sound. One of these lamps has been preserved and has served as a model for the whole series of new lamps which today illuminate the vestibules of the palace.
