There are four;  the Science and Industry Museum is putting the other two up next year http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk/manweb.nsf/Content/chandeliers but I don't know what's happened to the fourth. Still in storage perhaps.

You have to wait for the Discovering Ardi ad to finish, then the chandelier video is played. I played it without sound because the house is asleep. I'll have to play it with sound later to learn what happened when the little chandelier hit the floor. My heart stopped watching that part.

We not getting ads here in the UK, maybe 'cos it's the BBC. The final bit is an excerpt from a comedy "Only Fools and Horses."
I also read on the contractor's website that the chandeliers were never put back the same way when they were cleaned previously, so they had to use the 1960s photos to make a best guess.

I may get to the museum in St Helens next month so maybe I can take some photos to add here.
