Vintage French Gold Metal Light Fixture Sputnik Style Chandelier circa 1950

A stylish vintage French chandelier fixture with Sputnik interior circa 1950 was originally a holiday decoration used in a department store where the richly reflective gold glitter surface sparkled and twinkled amongst the other lights. The metal parts create a spherical enclosure with swirls along each of the horizontal ribs and the vertical ribs rounding out the sphere. Now this large orb has been fitted with an interior light source commonly known as a Sputnik after the famous Russian space satellite launched in 1957. The powerful sight of Russian space supremacy jolted the United States to create NASA and sparked a love affair with the modern lines of the Sputnik shape. This gilt French lighting fixture chandelier has twelve lights encased within the sphere and each arm takes a chandelier base bulb. The vintage French fixture has 6' of chain as well as a ceiling canopy.
