Bespoke Project Case Study

The Lyels-Ford II Chandelier

150 yr old Venetian Classic

The Ask

The home owner asked for a restoration of a 150+ year old venetian classic once owned by Henry Ford II.

This original chandelier was created in Murano Italy in 1850. Its providence traces ownership through Henry Ford II, ultimately to its current owner residing in Carmel Highlands of California.

The item was nearly entirely destroyed in a cleaning mishap. After a previously unsuccessful attempt to restore the work in Italy, the owner provided detailed images of the original work, and all of the shattered components of the original chandelier and asked MGW to research and recreate the important work.

The Project

MGW spent six months painstakingly researching and remaking components for this work.


MGW is tremendously proud to have played a role in the history of this important work.
