I wanted to post this just to compare the Murano Compote Candy with the Murano Chandelier!

Thanks for looking! :^)

    I'd be afraid to change a light-bulb in the chandelier-- too fragile!

    Hey SpiritBear, this was designed between 1850-80, so just think about lighting candles! Yikes! Thanks for your comment! :^D

    Thank you all for checking out this compare post, and loving it,

    and Roy,

    Just as I suspected! Spare bits of elaborate chandeliers (& other glass items in multiple parts) often get broken up & then re - purposed into other things over the years. Still a lovely item & it's nice that it has survived.

    Thank you again IronLace, for your help, and welzebub's too, in figuring out what this is, and who made it! :^D
    The way that it was put together, and the materials used, seems that it was made in a factory, possibly as a pair, for use on a fireplace mantle, but just my thoughts about it. I couldn't find any drawings for the compote/candy, on line, but did find some for the chandelier, made between 1850-80. :^)
