Mid-Century Modern Gold-Plated and Cut Crystal Chandelier by Bakalowits & Sohne

About

This exquisite Mid-Century Modern chandelier was realized by the illustrious maker Bakalowits & Sohne, circa 1960. It features two tiers of faceted circular crystals- that appear like diamonds- set into circular gold plated brass supports, refracting the light beautifully. These diamond like crystals recur in the bottom of the chandelier as well. Additionally, the circular supports that hold the crystals appear halved at the apex of the frame, creating a scalloped motif that circumscribes the top. It attaches to the ceiling via a cylindrical rod and undulating conical canopy, both in gold plated brass. This fixture is a glimmering and luminescent jewel, guaranteed to add a touch of glamour and old world elegance to any interior space that it graces. The height can be adjusted to suit. It has been newly rewired to American standards and is in excellent condition. The chandelier accommodates six Edison based bulbs offering up to 600 watts of light. Austria, circa 1960 Dimensions: 22.5" height x 21" diameter.

About Bakalowits & Sohne (Designer)

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.
