A signed French art deco pendant around 1930 in nickel plated bronze or solid brass holding a beautiful shade by Degué in frosted pressed glass. Normaly most French art deco bowls are frosted on the outside and remained glossy on the inside of the bowl. Sometimes, but it's rare, we can find Degué Schneider or Muller freres shades that are glossy on the outside and were made mat by acid on the inside. Like we can see on this chandelier with a beautiful bowl by Degué the glass company of David Guéron that produced art deco shades from 1926 till 1936.
It´s is in very good condition. I have renickeled and patinated the authentic fixture. The shade has a diameter of 35 cm (13-3/4). The chandelier has a height of 68 cm (26-3/4). The pendant is rewired and holds three US candelabra base sockets.For Europe I will wire it with three E14 sockets. Check out over 300 other French art deco lamps in my shop.
Art deco lamps made in France were equiped with B22 bayonet sockets. For most countries like Europe or the US such sockets are practicaly impossible to use. For instance in the States 110 volt bulbs with B22 fitters are obscure, very hard to find and only one model bulb in very limited wattages is available.
In spite of what sellers of unrestored pieces of poor quality claim in their ads when they offer lamps with bayonet caps sockets : except for the UK and Australia French chandeliers and lamps need to be rewired for your country. In order to fit Edison large or small screw base bulbs as used in the USA, B22 sockets have to be replaced by American candelabra base or standard/medium size Edison screw-in sockets. E14 and E27 are modern replacements for European countries. An additional complication is that the size thread used in early French lighting to connect the sockets to the chandelier mountings or lamp bases is not compatible with the modern size threads used in the USA and Europe.
New American or European sockets do not just screw on to the old lamp fixtures. In order to make it possible to use an original old French chandelier or lamp with modern screw bulb bases, a specialized restorer will have to re-tap the threads. All my cleaned and restored chandeliers, sconces and lamps come rewired with the correct sockets you will need to use modern bulbs in your country.
