Mid-Century Baroque Style Floral Opaline Three Arm Murano Chandelier having Rigaree Trim


In stock


This Baroque-style floral opaline with gold-infused Murano glass has three lovely scroll arms holding tulip-shaded bobeches having red rigaree trim. Rigaree trim is made by crimping the applied bands.

The body and arms are made of opalescent Murano glass of the most luminous quality. In the 16th century, opaline glass was made from the calcium phosphate coming from the calcination of bone. Opaline is also made from phosphate rock. The opaline was then infused with 24KT gold particles.

The reddish and raspberry-pink color was achieved by adding selected chemical compounds to the silica during melting. To achieve the color, an incredible amount of accuracy is required in terms of proportions and timings.

Such Murano masterpieces require a high level of skill and experience, which is one of the many reasons Murano has been loved throughout the centuries. Traveling against space and time, the artistry of this Murano chandelier will add mystery and magic to any room 9 feet or higher.
