For centuries chandeliers have been a sign of wealth class and elegance. Initially relegated only to cathedrals castles and homes of the very wealthy chandeliers were fairly impractical as they held candles that burned out frequently and had to be replaced by servants. With the advent of electric lighting however chandeliers quickly became a way not just to display glamour and class but to effectively light a room as well.
Murano glass stands for beauty quality craftsmanship and tradition. From as early as 1200's Murano glassmakers operated their furnaces to create beautiful objects from such trivial substances as sand sodium and certain basic minerals. The foundations of the craft came down to Venetians from ancient Romans that knew how to heat up silica (or fine sand) till it starts to melt add minerals for colors and shape the hot glass mass into intricate forms. But certainly not everyone who knew the theory of this process could create high quality glass objects.
If you have old chandeliers at home you might want to consider restoring them and then selling them via flea markets or garage sales so you can gain a quick profit. If your chandelier is a genuine antique have it appraised since many collectors are willing to dish out $20000 or more for priceless relics from bygone eras. Don't forget to make sure that the antique chandelier sellers are certified and have a credible reputation so that you are guaranteed that you will be paying for a genuine antique lighting fixture.
Contemporary chandeliers can be made of numerous different metal finishes such as bronze brass nickel chrome and even silver.
