Grand Venetian Chandelier
A“Rezzonico” Chandelier, named after the eponymous family, who built a Palace at the Canale Grande in Venice in 1750.
The 24-light, 5‑level Venetian Chandelier is abundantly decorated with colorful blossoms, leaves and berries. The richly flower embellished receiving bowl emerges into a beautifully decorated vase in the center and multiple hand forged, and glass clad arms terminating in large drip pans.
Surmounted by a 3‑level crown — lavishly decorated with ornaments, blossoms, berries and leaves — and a ceiling fitment.
It is pure joy to follow all those stunningly elaborated, handmade glass flowers in different colors, such as bellflowers, which embellish this magnificent Chandelier all over, partly in a pasty glass imitating porcelain. This object truly is an impressive example of high-quality craftsmanship.
Rare to find in this amazing condition and of that charming provenance of a grand, Venetian Palace. It will uplevel an Interior with elegant raffinesse for sure.
