BELMONT, Eleanor Robson (1879-1979) – A METAL AND CRYSTAL BROOCH

Designed as a replica of the Metropolitan Opera’s chandeliers, with enclosed note from Wallace K. Harrison, the architect on the project and designer of the chandeliers, stating that J. & L. Lobmeyr of Austria had specially made the limited edition pins out of original materials used in the fixtures. Now iconic, the starburst chandeliers were a gift from the Republic of Austria, as a gesture of thanks for the Marshall Plan’s help after World War II. Measuring 3¼ x 1½ inches (8 x 3.8 cm).
