Murano is a beautiful island of Italy that can be reached by a ten minute boat ride from Venice. Murano is known for its elite group of glassmakers. Its artisans have been supplying the world with quality glass products since as far back as the 12th century.

Murano chandeliers are no exception, the uniqueness and hand-made quality is unmatched to this day. Originally the art of " Venetian Glass " originated in Venice, Italy. However, in the year 1291 the glass industry was moved to the island of Murano because of the fire danger created by the combination of old wood buildings in Venice and the actual process of creating the glass.

Chandelier
The word chandelier appeared in the English language in the late 14th century, borrowed directly from 12th century Old Spanish. This was a new spelling of the 10th century French word chandelabre, which comes from the Latin candelabrum, itself from the Latin candela (meaning candle).

The earliest candle chandeliers were used by the wealthy in medieval times.

The world's largest Bohemian crystal chandelier, a gift from Queen Victoria, is located in the Dolmabahçe Palace in Istanbul. It has 750 lamps and weighs 4.5 tons. Dolmabahçe has the largest collection of Bohemian and Baccarat crystal chandeliers in the world, and one of the great staircases has balusters of Baccarat crystal.
