About

A huge flush mount chandelier by J.L. Lobmeyr, Austria, Vienna, manufactured in Mid-Century, in 1975. This fixture is one of only a few custom made pieces for the foyer of the Hilton hotel in Vienna. The Hilton hotel has been refurbished a couple of years ago and this fixture is part of the changed interior. This awesome lamp is a hand made and high quality piece which is in excellent condition. It is made of a brass body with a panel in the centre to cover the 20 bulbs inside. The panel is made of a nickelled grid which is decorated with many large diamond shaped crystal glasses. The whole panel consists of four parts which can be removed independently to change the bulbs inside the lamp. There are 20 sockets for medium screw base bulbs or LEDs. In our 1stdibs storefront there are many other high quality lights from premium makers like Lobmeyr, Bakalowits, Kalmar, and Palwa.

About J.L Lobmeyr (Maker)

The venerable Austrian firm J. & L. Lobmeyr is one of the world’s premier glassware makers and purveyors, noted especially for its lighting and tableware designs. Headquartered in Vienna, Lobmeyr has won numerous illustrious commissions in its nearly two centuries in business, including the chandeliers for the Hapsburg monarchy’s Schönbrunn Palace, the Lincoln Center home of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.


Lobmeyr is still family owned and managed. The company was founded by glass trader Josef Lobmeyr in 1823. It thrived during the long tenure of his son Ludwig, who built a network of manufacturers and artisanal workshops in Bohemia—central Europe’s revered glass-making region, now part of the Czech Republic—and earned imperial patronage. (He also collaborated with Thomas Edison to create the first electric chandelier, in 1883.) His nephew, Stefan Rath, who took over as head of Lobmeyr in 1917, introduced modernist design to the company repertoire, contracting with designers such as Josef Hoffmann, Adolf Loos, Otto Prutscher and Michael Powolny to create tableware.


Lobmeyr has never been married to a dominant in-house design type. The firm has produced chandeliers and sconces in styles as various as neo-Baroque, Rococo, neoclassical (or Louis XVI), Art Nouveau, minimalist and “sputnik” mid-century modern. As you will see from the offerings available on these pages, Lobmeyr can bring a sense of grandeur suitable to any décor.
