It is the properties of the brass that makes it the number 1 choice for high quality lighting fixtures. Brass is also relatively easier to do casting so allows the manufacturer to make ornate chandeliers with cast brass arms. Brass also offers better durability and long lasting finish if it is gold plated and lacquered.
