Schonbek® lighting is synonymous with authentic handcrafted crystal chandeliers of the highest heirloom quality. Each creation is a radiant masterpiece of elegance and opulence, designed and crafted to illuminate generations to come. In 1870, young Adolph Schonbek left his grandfather’s glassworks to found A. Schonbek & Co. The young entrepreneur focused on manufacturing crystal chandeliers of the finest quality and quickly built up a successful international business. He was eventually awarded the company’s iconic crest by Franz Joseph I of the Habsburg Court, most notably known as the former Emperor of Austria.
