Circa 1950s Rare Sputnik Light Fixture
Circa 1950s Mid-Century Modern style rare Sputnik shaped pendant light fixture constructed during the "Atomic Age" of Modern furniture design. The piece with various arms radiating from a central spherical core was directly inspired by similar construction of the Russian "Sputnik" satellite. The chandelier is further accented with small metal ring accent motifs on top and base of the column that suspends the spherical core. Please note of wear consistent with age including surface scratches and patina to the metal as seen on the light bulb sockets.
