Vintage Baroque Style Gold Infused Opaline Murano Chandelie


In stock


This exquisitely handcrafted gold-infused opaline Murano chandelier has three flexing arms with petal trimmed cups. The milky opaline glass veers towards a light blue color with subtle changes in the light. Flowers and leaves embellish this glass chandelier, blooming from the small bulbous center column. The piece has further detailing of scroll stems, twirling leaf ends, and rigaree trim; exhibiting a masterful flair in glass craftsmanship.

The glass-houses on the island of Murano are famous for highly ornamented glass chandeliers created by the inflation of molten glass followed by cutting, pincering, and other rapidly executed decorations and details. The body and arms of this piece are made of opaline Venetian glass enhanced with 24-carat gold leaf. Opaline glass is typically made a bluish-white by the addition of Calcium phosphate (bone ash) and opalescent by the addition of fluorides (Fluorspar, Cryolite, or Lepidolite) and/or Arsenic. The golden details are concentrated on the trims, petals and leaves which compliment the shifting opalescent hues.

A splendid combination of opaline glass and glimmering gold, distinguished by the subtle tones of gold and blue. This chandelier
demonstrates a delicate Baroque-style design still loved by many, resulting in a glistening floral centerpiece. The golden infusions enchant the illusion of sunlight, whereas the opaline is reminiscent of the moon’s glow. An example of refinement and ephemeral beauty, this chandelier is truly captivating and elevates any interior with a touch of the natural world.
