Chandelier in 18th-century Venetian style with 6 polychrome crystal lamps with gold decoration, complete with spare parts and ceiling cup to conceal wiring with chain. This chandelier is particular because it is the head of the whole family, either joined with metal brackets at the sides or completely covered with glass parts.

Murano glass chandeliers of the Carezzonico or Ciocca type:

 

they take their name from one of the most famous palaces in Venice, located in the Dorsoduro district and overlooking the Grand Canal between Palazzo Contarini Michiel and Palazzo Bernardo Nani, not far from Ca'Foscari.

Ca' Rezzonico in short is the seat of the Museum of the Venetian 18th century, but it also houses an immense historical treasure of Murano blown glass chandeliers: the Ciocca or Rezzonico chandelier to understand us, the first one designed and designed by Giuseppe Briati and made in Murano in the second half of the 18th century. A monumental Murano chandelier of sumptuousness and lightness, supported by an innovative interlocking technique that seems to cancel the supporting structure among the coloured reflections.  The Ciocca or carezzonico chandelier is the focal point of the exhibition curated by Cornelia Lauf under the scientific direction of Gabriella Belli.
