Met Opera Sconce Ornament

Designed exclusively for the Met Opera Shop, this eye-catching ornament is reminiscent of the wall sconces found throughout the Metropolitan Opera House.

Originally conceived 50 years ago by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr, Vienna, these fixtures possess a modern sensibility and are an iconic part of Met history.

Made of laser-cut, shiny stainless steel and brilliant rectangular-shaped rhinestones arranged as the crystals are in the original sconces.

A spectacular gift for the holidays, this unique ornament is also a special memento of one’s visit to the Metropolitan Opera.

  • A Met Opera Shop Exclusive
  • Stainless steel
  • Rhinestones
  • Laser-cut
  • 2” W x 4” H
  • Silver ribbon attached for hanging

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.
