Red Murano Chandelier Glass Rings external 65mm, internal 35mm
Rare pieces in very good condition


This is an original hand made piece and will allow your Murano chandelier to retain its historic value

When restoring antique chandeliers we would always recommend, where possible, to use antique chandelier parts rather than reproduction pieces.
 
Whilst a reproduction piece may appear to be cheaper (depending on the piece) it can detract from the value of your chandelier both from a monetary value but also an historic value. 

The processes used now are not the same as when the pieces were originally made.  For instance Murano, also known as Venetian Glass, the furnaces for the molten glass used wood, whereas today gas furnaces are the choice for glassmaking. 

The glassmakers of Murano were skilled craftsmen who relied more on their skills than specialised tools having an old saying "Good tools are nice, but good hands are better," 
Murano glass, also known as Venetian glass, has a long and colourful past, with the glassmakers families enjoying privaliged.  lifes allowing them to marry into noble families without a loss of status BUT there were prices to pay.  Glassmakers were not to leave the Murano Island without permission and if they did so their families were arrested,to not return to the Island could result in the glassmakers death.

Glassmakers were not allowed to divulge trade secrets or "recipes", again to do so could result in their death.  To be able to monitor the import and export of the glassware and to reduce the fire risk, from the wooden furnaces, to the wooden buildings on the mainland the industry was moved to the Islands of Murano.

Murano chandeliers are magnificent expressions of art and in the 1700's Giuseppe Briati's chandeliers were called "Ciocche" , translation meaning bouquet of flowers, his chandeliers had many arms, flowers, garlands and leaves.

Murano chandeliers have had many collectors throughout the ages including Kings, Queens, Popes, Generals and Ambassadors and are enjoyed by many people today, they were used in theatres, palaces and stately homes before also being used in smaller settings.
