The traditional ceiling medallion skyrocketed in popularity in Victorian Home, usually ornately displayed around the chandeliers/gasoliers on coffered ceilings. The pricy pendants were constructed by hand from paper mache, ornamental plaster or metal; often decorated with acanthus leafs or floral motifs. They signified social standing but, have virtually disappeared in ceiling design around pendant lighting in the post-World War II era due to the effort required in creating and maintaining the adornments.
