Ca D' Zan Chandeliers

This brilliant Green chandelier hangs over the Breakfast Table
Why did the woman fix her bed to the chandelier?
Because she was a light sleeper. 

A pretentious woman was showing a friend round her new home. "It's very lovely," her friend admitted, "but what you need in this big room is a chandelier." "I know, my dear," said her gracious hostess, "but nobody in the family plays one.


 This one hangs in the great hall, two stories high. in this photo, you can get a feeling for the ornate ceiling and the sky light.

The green chandelier is a first for me. Where DO you get all your jokes? No, don't tell. I'll just keep getting my fix here when I visit!

The detail in these photos is mind boggleing,absolutly beautiful.

OH by the way I do play the Chandelier, and a little bit of the Gondola. lol......

Krista said...

LOL@ Snapper II.... I was going to make a similar joke but I see you beat me to it.

Sandra, these are gorgeous! I like the clear chandelier better than the green in terms of actual decorations - but the green photographed SO well. You did a great job, they are beautiful. What an amazing place to visit!

Great photos! I've never seen a green chandelier before. Just now, having had a kind of householdy day, all I can think is "how do they CLEAN that thing"... (LOL)

Break out the Swiffer! Beautiful but must be a pain to dust, LOL!

While both chandeliers are beautiful, I really like the one in the Great Hall.

I've never seen a green one - but it was quite interesting as is the whole entire place. sandie

THANK YOU! I really needed a smile today! AND I always know where I can get one! Love the beautiful lights....we don't even have one that fancy at our house. I think I need to move in there!

Beautiful chandeliers, Sandra... But--I kept wondering how they keep the cobwebs and dust off of them... Guess they have hired someone JUST for that purpose!!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

My very favorite of them all is the green!!!! How come you don't see more colored chandeliers, only clear glass? I love that one! Those big round bulbs are kind of goofy looking, though. But I guess along with the black it gives a kind of wild and offbeat effect.

MedaM said...

Beautiful ceiling and its decoration and really lovely chandeliers!Both are lovely on their own way. Thank you for these wonderful posts about this beautiful building. I completely enjoyed.

I love that emerald green one... thought I would attach some sort of decorative light bulbs and maybe glass shades to make it look a bit more finished. That hall in the second picture is gorgeous!

Kilauea Poetry said...

Lol) I wouldn't want to sleep under one of those!! I suppose I'd be a light sleeper too? I honestly like the green- especially where you took the shot up close just underneath! I'd like to hear my echo in there (grin)

It's difficult to imagine how they keep those sparkling clean.

Ann said...

I'm not really a chandelier kind of person but they sure are pretty.

Stacey Dawn said...

Oh - that last one - now that's my kinda chandy!!!!! purty!

SquirrelQueen said...

I really like that green chandelier, the breakfast room is the perfect place for it. I wonder if it is hanging in a place that would catch the morning light, can you imagine how the colors would reflect off the walls.
