This is a vintage midcentury modern brass atomic era sputnik chandelier with 12 arms. It is a perfect dining room or living room ornament, casting a warm glow with a funky and iconic retro look. It has a simple center rod extending from the mounting plate to an interesting and sleek atomic style spherical hub, from which each arm extends. The use of negative space and elongated lines in this chandelier is to die for, and would look excellent in a vintage design scheme equally as much as in an uber-contemporary space.
The chandelier is in excellent vintage condition with age-appropriate wear, such as minor scuffing and patina consistent with age.
It measures about 30 inches wide in total diameter, and each arm is 15 inches long to from the center to the bulb socket. The total drop length from ceiling plate to lowest reach of the arms is approximately 21 inches. The stem measures 18 inches from ceiling plate to the bottom of the central sphere.
