Founded by Adolph Schonbek in 1870, the name Schonbek carries a reputation for innovation in the crystal lighting industry. The former Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I of Habsburg awarded Schonbek a personal crest - a crest that remains the iconic brand logo to this day. For more than 140 years, the Schonbek name has carried with it a reputation as a change maker in lighting, revolutionizing the industry.
Since its inception, Schonbek has been synonymous with authentic, handcrafted crystal lighting of the highest heirloom quality. Continuing Schonbek's long tradition of chandelier making, each Schonbek piece is proudly designed, engineered and hand made in Plattsburgh, NY, U.S.A.
