Midcentury Crystal Sputnik Chandelier by Emil Stejnar for Rupert Nikoll


This brilliant Mid-Century Modern sputnik was realized by the fabled Austrian designer Emil Stejnar for Rupert Nikoll Pyra, circa 1960. It features an abundance of polished chrome cylindrical rods emanating outwards from an orbital body. Each rod offers a collection of white enamel tendrils that extend outwards culminating in alternating bulbs and floral crystal pendants surrounded by a collection of beveled orbital glass jewels. The fixture attaches to the ceiling via a polished chrome circular canopy in the same material. Crafted by one of Europe's great lighting ateliers, this piece embodies the impeccable craftsmanship and timeless elegance of Mid Century Modern design at its finest. It would be a winning addition to any style of interior. It has been newly rewired to American standards and is in excellent condition. The height can be adjusted to suit. It features 16 candelabra based bulbs providing up to 960 watts of light, Austria, circa 1960 Dimensions: 15.5" diameter x 29" height.
