Limited Edition Medium Sputnik
Now available from the Met Opera Shop Online.
The Met's starburst chandeliers are one of the best-loved features of the opera house. Dubbed "Sputniks" after the Russian spacecraft, they were a gift to the Met from the Austrian government.
When these chandeliers were replaced in 2008, we used the original Swarovski crystals to create these one-of-a-kind works of art that will display beautifully in your home or office. Each Sputnik ornament is hand crafted and unique.
Please note that these are from the original 1966 installation and may include imperfections and wear expected from a vintage item. Each one is slightly different. Please let us select one for you.
Dimensions of Medium Sputnik: Approx. 8"w x 9"h
The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers have been a beloved fixture of the opera house at Lincoln Center since it opened in 1966. Dubbed “sputniks” after the Russian spacecraft, they reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
