Met Opera Collectible Sputnik Pin by Lobmeyr

The Met's iconic "sputnik" chandeliers were designed by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr, Vienna, for the new opera house at Lincoln Center.

This brooch, inspired by the starburst design, was originally given to the Met planning team and guests of honor at the building's opening in September 1966.  It is now being reissued, using genuine Swarovski crystals and Lobmeyr craftmanship.

History

Sputniks

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.
