"The Met's starburst chandeliers are among 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 in the Metropolitan Opera House 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 Sputnik comes with our signature Met gold curtain bag and a Certificate of Authenticity."
