A stunning F rench art deco pendant by Hettier & Vincent in nickel plated bronze or solid brass holding a beautiful square bowl in heavy and thick glass made by. Des Hanots was like Verlys one of the brands of the large Holophane glass company. It's done in moulded-pressed glass made opaque by acid and highlighted by glossy transparent polished parts. Like many models Hanots made this bowl is never signed.
Hettier et Vincent, the famous lighting firm in Paris, used this shade for pendants chandeliers and flush mounts. The large 30x30 cm canopy was also used as a flush mount with a small shade.
The pendant is in very good condition. Some small chips on the edges of the shade hardly visible with the pendant in place. I have renickeled and patinated the mounting.
The bowl measures 30x30 cm (11,8 x 11,8). The chandelier has a height of 56 cm (22). It is rewired and holds an American standard socket.
For European countries I will place a E27 one. 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.The item "HETTIER & VINCENT FRENCH ART DECO CHANDELIER Hanots pendant" is in sale since Saturday, August 29, 2020.
