Magnificent Ca' Rezzonico Murano Chandelier

according to Giuseppe Briati

Giuseppe Briati was a famous Venetian glassmaker in the 18th-Century who focused his work on the creation of what are now recognised as the typical Murano chandeliers with multiple arms decorated with garlands, flowers and leaves, called "ciocche". He created what it's now called Rezzonico Chandelier, whose name derive from the first chandelier of its kind, that represents the classic Murano chandelier. It was designed by Briati for the noble venetian family Rezzonico and hung in their palace along the Grand Canal, now famed venetian museum under the name "Ca' Rezzonico".
