Italy, Circa: 19th century


The first Murano glass chandeliers started production in the early 18th century. Venetian glass had been produced since the early 13th century and was renowned as the most beautiful and purest glass in the world. The glassmakers of Murano had always excelled at making beautiful and original works of art, and the transfer of their skill to chandelier production instantly bought a new dimension to the possibilities of chandelier design. Following a fall in production after the occupation of the Venetian republic by the armies of Napoleon from 1797, the mid-19th century saw a revival of Murano glass production when Venetian glass became intensely popular again.
