Grand Ca Rezzonico chandelier. All made in clear glass with 24-karat gold leaf embedded into glass.
The use of gold leaf highlights and bring preciousness to the chandelier.
There are two highlights on this chandelier, the first is a row of glass spheres swaging from one arm to the other. These pearls garlands are repeated here and there on the chandelier structure.
The other is the use of S and C elements that are called Pastorali in rigadin.
The whole purpose is to catch a reflect the light.
The structure has 9 arms and the 3 stems called tiranti are holding each 2 staggered trionfi with pastorali, lantern and leaves.
Great centra trionfo which is part of the well execution of a Rezzonico. The cage made by the 3 stems leaves a space in the center that is used for a Baroque construction. Because the 3 stems are elongate to allow the two trionfi, the central trionfo was raised. The result is just beautiful.
See the photos to catch all the details.
