Description

The Metropolitan Opera Sconce Ornament

Designed exclusively for the Met, this elegant 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.

The ornament is made of laser-cut, shiny stainless steel and brilliant rectangular-shaped rhinestones arranged in the same pattern featured in the original sconces.

A spectacular gift for the holidays, this unique ornament is also a special memento of the Metropolitan Opera House.

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.
