Scroll to see over seventy hanging French Art Deco and Art Nouveau lights and chandeliers.

(click here to request additional photos of particular fixtures)

A brief description follows each picture; most have been fully restored and rewired (meaning that they've been totally disassembled, replated in brushed nickel, "antiqued" to avoid that Born Yesterday look, reassembled and outfitted with new American sockets and wire) and are ready to hang and "light up your life!" If you look around the web at comparable quality French Art Deco chandeliers and light fixtures, you'll notice that my prices are reasonable in the extreme; they're a mere shadow of what they were when I exhibited them in my San Francisco showroom (now closed) or on 1stdibs.com, where I showed for four years. What you can't really see is how carefully/compulsively these items have been restored, how MY renovation work makes others' look, well, "wanting." In most instances these lights are in better condition than when they were brand new, nearly a hundred years ago (primarily because modern plating is superior by far, believe it or not).

Payment may be made by check or wire transfer only; your satisfaction is guaranteed. Items will be packed by myself (for a nominal fee) and shipped by ground (or air, if desired), insured, at your expense; packing and shipping estimates are available at your request.

 

(1) Just shot out of Jack's Restoration Cannon (and a formidable job it was!), this spare, elegant beauty takes me to the world of ballet -- instead of "red shoes," here it's opal glass shades, but no less intoxicating. Several of the shades have cracks and several have chips, but if you keep the wattage at or below 25 watts each, there won't be any problems; the beauty of the fixture certainly isn't compromised. It measures about 24 inches across and hangs down, with chain, at 40 inches as seen, but that can be reduced to 27 (minimum). Additional pix are available! (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(2) Another volley from Jack's Restoration Cannon -- and this substantial 5-light two-tone solid brass fixture has PRESENCE! It measures about 29 inches across and with all the (original) antique chain I have, a maximum of 33 inches long. The patina-of-the-ages is certainly not "perfect" (by any stretch), but it lends a lovely antique quality to the piece. Light gathers in the clear teardrop-like elements surrounding the glass shades. Ooooo... all ready to hang, as long as you're willing to buy and use bayonet-based bulbs (they're readily available in a variety of wattages on in the internet, and five will come with the fixture); or, for not that much more I'll make the conversion to American candelabra sockets. (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(2a) Looking for all the world like Daum, but ... not being Daum! On the other hand, lovely to behold, and appreciably larger than many bowls, at 17 1/2 inches across; hand or mold blown to boot, with polished pontil on the bottom. The original antique chain and canopy are equally fetching, non? As shown it hangs down 21 inches, but of course some links can be removed if you want it closer to the ceiling. With one socket in the center. (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(3) Here's a spell-binder, a sunburst French Art Deco chandelier sporting six Ezan opalescent shades! Opalescent shades look fabulous lit, when their rich, warm gold tones are accentuated. Their "hint of blue" colors round out a dazzling presence (can you tell they're my favorites?!!). This fixture measures 26 1/2 wide (the shades are 8 inches in diameter themselves) and 32 long (additional pictures are available). Fully restored, including being disassembled and replated in a gorgeous brushed nickel finish! (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(4) A French Art Deco chandelier featuring a stylized leaf motif, with original glass (signed) by Degué. Disassembled, replated in brushed nickel (over solid brass), antiqued, fitted with American candelabra sockets, and rewired. About 33" long, 26" across. (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(5) Here's another perfect example of why I shop La Belle France -- creative design and whimsy! Four 6" diameter, subtlely decorated (in the Deco style) globes with "rope" supports and ornate canopy and shade holders! Love (and red wine) made this Subaru! It hangs a total of 30 inches and the diameter is about 16. Spectacular! (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(5a) How out-of-character, a French glass bowl with no floral decorations!! I particularly appreciate the omission -- the spare, Modernist aesthetic being my favorite. Ah, but how rare this form of expression! It hangs about 17" as shown, and point to point about 11 3/4 across. The hanging apparatus will be custom-made to fit your circumstance, as usual. (e-mail Jack for the price)

(e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(73) Oh, yeah! Probably Hettier-Vincent (an entirely superior company), with truly "stunning" -- ouch, I'm stunned! -- design and weight, quality up the ying-yang. The patina of the ages (it was originally nickel plated but much has been worn away, at the loving hands of Fifi the French maid; however, it can be replated for another $225). It hangs down about 26 inches as shown and is about 6" square. What a hunk!! (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(74) Ultra-rare gold and iridescent shades lend such an air of elegance to this French 1910-ish solid brass wonder. The embellishments give the appearance of licking flames... YUM! It hangs down around 25 inches as you see it. Rewired and all that business, of course! (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(75) For the Sophisticated Collector -- a (signed) Wrought Iron Piguet Chandelier!
Charles Piguet practiced his craft in Lyon, France, and was one of the most distinguished wrought iron artists/craftsmen there in the 1920s.  In fact, his work appeared at the 1925 Paris Exhibition alongside that of the Parisien greats like Edgar Brandt and Paul Kiss.  What a rarity to have this extraordinary (signed) piece, the only one I have had the privilege to garner from the Mother Lode, La Belle France. Do I really need to say anything about that INSANELY decorative "canopy?!" The entire affair goes up against the ceiling, for a visual treat sans pareille. And, not to worry, the fixture hangs quite straight, the crookedness here is just the result of my photography. Dimensions: 21 x 21 x 38. (e-mail Jack for the price)

 

(76) This is one of the more unusual pieces that I've hauled out of France, where the appreciation level is, well, not quite up to ours.  But then, they have seen and lived with these things kicking around for decades, if not centuries, n'est-ce pas?!  At any rate, this piece of molded glass, besides its highly unusual and bizarre color, features four owl-like creatures whose eyes cleverly serve double-duty as fastening/hanging devices.  Zut alors!  Wouldn't it be perfect in your library, or dungeon?  I've fitted it with two American candelabra sockets, each capable of hosting a 60 watt bulb. Dimensions: 13 x 13 x 28. (e-mail Jack for the price)

(77) So, who needs electricity, anyway?!! My instincts tell me it's French, but I bought it here in the U.S., so who really knows? One thing's for sure, the craftsmanship is impeccable, in the manner of French Art Deco hand-wrought iron. Candlelight dinners? Too much romance for you? Move over!! Of course it can be rewired, if you must... Meanwhile, enjoy the soft, delicate light of the five beeswax candles... It's about 24 inches across and hangs down 22. (e-mail Jack for the price)
