Large Empire Style Chandelier in brass and Bohemian crystal in an oval shape, rich in crystals and brass inserts that make the shape of this chandelier particularly harmonious. The balloon-shaped structure is in chiseled brass, enriched by rows of crystal octagons that descend from the upper crown  to join up in the central oval-shaped crown. The central stem is made up of richly worked brass inserts, the middle part is formed by a brass crown set with faceted octagonal crystals which, together with the crystals of the hot air balloon, when illuminated by the internal bulbs, create a wonderful play of light and reflections. To further enrich the central part of this chandelier there are the glass leaves (palmettes) that run along the entire perimeter. The chandelier was made in Italy in the mid-1900s, lit by 16 lights (12 external E14 wooden candles and 4 internal E27 lights). The chandelier has been completely restored, stripped down to every single piece of brass, the oxide has been removed and all the crystals have been cleaned. The electrical system has been completely rebuilt, it also runs on LED bulbs. Ready to hang.

Methods for cleaning a droplet chandelier in glass or crystal

All chandeliers need some periodic maintenance to ensure that they are always shiny and bright. Below you will find some suggestions to help you in these operations and to clean them easily. There are several efficient methods and products to clean a drip chandelier:

  • First, turn off the power
  • Get some rags or newspapers and place them under the chandelier
  • If you use cleaning products for chandeliers, spray the product abundantly directly on the crystals, so that it drips on the newspapers placed on the floor and removes the dirt
  • Be careful not to spray the product inside the lamp holders otherwise when you turn on the light you could cause a short circuit
  • When you finish dripping the cleaner, the chandelier will be clean and shiny again
  • If you want to get a better effect, when the chandelier is still wet, gently rub the drops with a soft cloth
  • For cleaning you can also use natural products, creating mixtures of warm water and lemon, or water and vinegar, or water and bicarbonate, which can be sprayed with an aerator on the crystals and then rubbed with a cloth to remove dirt and dry them .

Methods for cleaning a Murano glass chandelier

There are several efficient methods and products to clean a Murano glass chandelier:

  • To begin with, disconnect the power and wait for the bulbs and glass to cool down, otherwise when you spray the solution on the glass you could risk breaking it due to the thermal shock
  • Get a ladder and unscrew all the bulbs, remove them holding the candle with one hand, otherwise it could rotate on itself and wind up the electric wires.
  • Start removing the leaves and flowers that are inserted into the central disc of the chandelier and place them on a soft surface
  • Fill a basin with warm water and add a product to clean the glass
  • If you prefer a more ecological but equally functional system, put warm water and white vinegar in a basin (2 glasses of vinegar for two liters of water)
  • Immerse the components of the chandelier one by one in the solution of water and vinegar, taking care to immerse only the glass parts, and not the part of the plaster case which is at the base of flowers and leaves, because if this were immersed the plaster would be ruined, thus damaging the correct functioning of the joint between the shells and the center disc
  • Dampen a cloth with warm water and vinegar, and rub it gently on the entire glass structure of the chandelier and on all the components that you could not remove, dry them with a microfiber cloth. At this point, reposition all the flowers, leaves and components that you previously disassembled and you will see that your chandelier will shine again like the first day.
