A beautiful French 1930 art deco lamp in nickel plated solid brass or bronze by Maynadier. The Paris France based company of Pierre Maynadier designed and produced lamps in art déco style.

Some of the exclusively for Maynadier produced shades in moulded pressed glass are signed P. Furthermore the company used often Muller shades and sometimes glasses produced by other famous glass makers like Schneider Espevet Sabino etc. The lamp on offer is in very good condition. It still has its original nickel plating. It shows only minimal signs of wear, of coarse it turned mat over the years, but I saw no reason replating it.

Its height is 31.2 cm (12-9/32) and it is rewired with new twisted rayon covered cord, new plug and switch. It is equiped with its old B22 bayonet cap socket. For the States I will place a US candelabra base socket and 2-prong plug.

For other countries I will place a European E14 socket. 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.
