Original Large Glass and Brass Sputnik or Starburst Chandelier, 4ft diam.


Although there are many versions and reproductions of the Sputnik chandelier out there, this one is truly one of the most amazing ones we've seen and a vintage one at that. The patina is absolutely stunning and gives proof of the vintage nature of this piece . This Mid-Century style chandelier consists of a center brass sphere from which numerous brass arms project outward each ending in a solid clear glass spike. Almost 4 ft. in diameter! The chandelier is suspended from a single brass rod. Superbly elegant in style and composition. Rewired for U.S. standards. This chandelier takes 32 light bulbs. Height measurement below is the overall height of this piece, including the brass rod and canopy. This chandelier is on display at the 1stdibs showroom at the New York Design Center (at 200 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY).
