About

These glamorous Bakalowits & Sohne cut crystal and polished brass flush mount fixtures appear like a scattering of brilliantly illuminated diamonds in a gold setting. Additionally, there are vertical perforations circumscribing the top of the fixture, near the base, that serve as subtle decorative flourishes, while also gently emitting light. Executed to the highest standards of excellence by Bakalowits & Sohne, one of the most storied makers of Austria, these rare and exquisite examples seldom see the market. They have been newly rewired and are in mint condition. The fixtures can also be purchased individually for $6,475.

Austria, circa 1950

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.
