Murano Glass Chandelier

Back in the year 1291, the Venetian government ordered all local glassmakers to move their foundries to the nearby island of Murano in order to prevent fires from destroying this precarious city of wooden buildings. To this day, those artisans produce some of the most extraordinary glass in the world. The Ca'Rezzonico chandelier shown here is one of the company's most traditional styles, and took a Murano artisan about three months to make by hand.
