Three large antique Murano chandeliers Ca 'Rezzonico model in blown glass, dating back to the early 1900s, handcrafted by master glassmakers and completely restored. I recovered them in a historic wedding dress studio in the center of the city of Taranto, and their restoration was rather laborious: they were completely dismantled, the metal of the structure now rusted by time and climatic factors was carefully brushed and then brushed silver. The period to which the chandeliers date can also be seen from the characteristics of the glass: in transparency and against the light you can see very small points, due to the fact that in the past the glass processing ovens were not able to keep constant the temperature and consequently this caused the formation of very small, almost imperceptible bubbles that characterize ancient glass, very transparent.
Another feature of those periods was the encapsulation of the various components of the chandeliers, for which iron capsules were used, while in more recent times (from the 1930s to today) aluminum capsules were used.
In the photo n. 10 you can see the chandeliers during the restoration phase.
Diameter 38in (95cm), Height 41in (105cm), 9 lights also work with LED bulbs.
THE PRICE INDICATED IS REFERRED TO A CHANDELIER, but they can also be sold in batches.
The electrical system has been redone again, all the glass has been cleaned and reassembled, restoring the candlesticks to their former glory (they are in perfect condition, without cracks). I still have a fourth chandelier to restore, on request I can finish the restoration.

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.
