Bakalowits Chandelier 'Supernova', Nickel Crystal Glass, 1960s

About

A rare and fantastic Supernova Sputnik chandelier by Bakalowits & Soehne, Austria, Vienna, manufactured in Mid-Century, circa 1960. A ball shaped nickel-plated brass frame is decorated with hundreds of hand-cut crystal glasses. The light takes eight small screw base bulbs. The sockets are inside the ball shaped body which consists of two half-balls. The upper one can be lifted easily to change the bulbs. This light is an excellent piece of craftsmanship. It is in excellent refurbished condition. The rod can be replaced with a nickeled chain if required. There are several Bakalowits lights (sconces, table lamps, pendant lights and chandeliers) in our 1stdibs storefront available.

About Bakalowits & Sohne (Maker)

For more than 170 years, lovers of chandeliers and builders of monumental public buildings have looked to Bakalowits of Vienna for dramatic lighting. In addition to the Vienna State Opera and the parliament building in the Serbian capital of Belgrade (home to one of the world’s largest crystal chandeliers), the company has created light fixtures for cruise ships, palaces, and other splendid spaces around the world since 1845. Five generations later, Bakalowits is still family owned.


     Awarded a Royal Warrant—and a commission for the Redoutensaele concert halls in the Hofburg Palace—by Emperor Franz Josef in 1892, Bakalowits began patenting its designs in 1928. Production slowed dramatically during World War II, but the company’s fortunes revived dramatically after the war as European cities began the painstaking process of rebuilding.


     Far from stuffy, Bakalowits designers have frequently captured the exuberant spirit of modernism. As you will see on these pages, whether your tastes run to traditional grandeur or contemporary chic, Bakalowits has a lighting fixture for you.
