For centuries to come, even as fashions changed and foreign craftsmen learned how to create good quality glass, Murano chandelier remained the most desired and prestigious type of chandelier around the world. Thus, it is no surprise that even today, when every type of material, color, and style is available, traditional and gorgeous Venetian chandeliers still decorate the most prestigious hotels, restaurants, theaters, and homes. When there is such abundance of products for every budget and taste on the market, people that want to stand out look for something artistic and one-of-a-kind. Thus, people buy Murano chandeliers not only because of their opulent hand-made beauty, but also because of the rich history that surrounds them and the special ambiance that such chandelier creates, evoking magical images of Venetian palazzos, canals, and gondolas.
This month the 2,500 pound chandelier that consists of 33,000 crystals was lowered from the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee for its annual cleaning. The chandelier is the centerpiece of the theatre and visitors are often more captivated by it than by whatever performance is going on at the theater. According to Sandra Wickler, one of the volunteers cleaning the chandelier who also serves as an usher, "It's amazing. When I usher here, the people who come in who have been here just go 'wow,' and they're snapping [cameras] away, and I'm like 'yes!'" Several volunteers are helping to clean the chandelier by polishing each of the 33,000 crystals by hand. Those volunteering for the two-day cleaning project each year say that they enjoy making the chandelier shine as it was intended to.
