Since the year 1000 Venice has been the center of excellence in glass manufacturing. On the other hand, its derivation from the Roman one, which developed in nearby Aquileia until the fifth century. The production in this period was of poor quality, but in the thirteenth century definitely improved, probably thanks to the importation of good raw materials from the East. In the last decades of the 1200s and in the following century, the glassmaking activities included the manufacture of blown glass for common use, such as tableware and tavernware, the preparation of mosaic plates and imitation gems and the decoration of glasses with fusible enamels.

In this period glass lenses were born, after the production by Venetian crystal makers of "roidi da ogli", which later, probably in Tuscany, were inserted into a frame to be held over the nose.

 The most important invention of this century was crystal or crystalline glass, with a purity similar to that of rock crystal, obtained with the use of carefully purified vegetable ashes, the careful choice of the vitrifying agent and an accurate control of the fumes during fusion to avoid contamination of the glass mass. Murano glass from the 15th and even more so from the 16th century was requested by the rich bourgeoisie and nobility of Italy and Europe.

Murano chandeliers are synonymous with handcrafted, colored blown glass. 

When used as light sources, the glow of the bulb filtered through Murano glass brings out the magnificent colors and designs. 

In many cases, the design is further projected onto a wall or ceiling, giving a beautiful and soft illumination to the room.

The design of Murano chandeliers is very varied.

 Murano glass can be used for table lamp bases, lamp shades, floor lamps, wall sconces, pendant lamps and chandeliers.

Combinations of white and clear glass, or Murano glass with swirls in which gold powder (called submerged gold) is inserted are generally used for classic style lamps and chandeliers while Murrina (also called millefiori Murano glass) and zanfirico (twisted glass ribbons) are used for more contemporary designs. Colors can vary from soft pastels to contrasting luminous effects.

It is useful to remember that each Murano chandelier is handmade in the authentic tradition of Venetian blown glass, according to secret techniques handed down over the centuries. 

As a result, each piece is a unique work of art and although Murano artisans may try to make identical pieces, no two are identical.
