Orignal VS Painted glass

Painted Glass or Original Chihuly Glass?

This is a very frequently asked question when client choose to buy the chihuly glass chandelier from us, We try to describe things clear and simple with some pictures.

Usually there are two types of glass using in the chihuly glass chandeliers. One of them is the thin hand blown glass with patined  color, the other option is the murano glass with original glass color when it is made. As below we will show the difference

As you can see the thickness of the patined glass will be thiner than then the original colored chihuly glass, so it will look not so sparkling and clear like the original. But the look still ok. The advantage is it’s much lighter than the original made glass, if your ceiling can not bear so much weight, and you also have a limited budget, then patined glass will be your best option.
