Very nice original Mueller light, showing some of my favorite Mueller modernist style glass. The copper metal frame, which is quite rare, really sets this piece off. I love the way, the metalwork details matches up nicely with the modernist glass shapes. Quite a useful piece, not your typical fixture with a long drop, so it would be great in a bedroom, office or hallway. Measurements listed below.
This elegant 1930s French chandelier is constructed almost entirely of beautifully frosted glass. There are 4 large glass triangular panels with 4 matching tulip style down lights. The somewhat hexagonal main shade panels are supported by an original nickel silver Art Deco frame. The canopy and support metal rods all match the outside metal frame as well. The result is a dazzling fixture, with a very straight-forward and clean design that will elicit endless admiration.
Wonderful modernist style Art Deco chandelier with all signed glass by Muller Freres. Circa 1930's unique iron work by Vasseur et Cie with a very unusual Penguin motif (one I've never seen before). All in perfect condition. The lamp has just been rewired and is ready to go!
This has to be one of the most spectacular French Art Deco Chandelier's I've seen for some time. Very unique, completely original and in the kind of near perfect condition we love to find. Things are looking up, what a sight: circa 1930's, each glass piece signed Mueller and the relationship of the iron work and the individual glass mounts makes a stunning display when lit up (or not). Nice size and a very striking piece which would add "spectacular" to any room.
Here is chance to own something special. These larger multiple glass fixtures are rarely available. I don't think we've shown one with this much glass in over 4-5 years. This high style, deep relief, peach glass peacock motif is breathtakingly repeated in the six tulip shades and the hexagonal center bowl. Even more rare is that the peacock motif is brilliantly echoed in the wrought ironwork.
The stylized, geometric-inspired peacocks with their fanned wings, strut their way across the whole fixture! Fantastic original patina. It has everything you would want in a great 1930's French art deco light fixture.
The condition is near perfect with no chips, cracks or manufacturing flaws that I can see.
Classic art deco circa 1930's, this wonderful bronzed patina fixture has some outstanding metalwork. It gives off great light, both below and above using clean frosted glass. I love all the metal details on the sides and center connectors for the arms. Utilizing classic art deco repeat patterns of stepped circles, curtain and speed lines all mingled together with some "REAL" cubist point of view. This is a wonderful fixture and would be great hanging over your dining room table, entry way or bedroom. With the chain you can make it just about any size you need.
One of my favorite designers. I love to buy Degue lamps whenever I can. It is getting more difficult all the time. This is especially nice because of the French iron, all original throughout. Nice Geometric style glass, with matching (3) tulip hanging glass pieces to compliment the over-all style. It takes what might be an ordinary glass light to something extraordinary. Would look great hanging above you dining table, entry way or foyer.
It is amazing what you find sometimes when you take your time and really clean these old fixtures up. This is a piece I bought thinking I would have it all re-plated. We took some time and with a lot of elbow grease, underneath the aged patina, we found this most fantastic copper color. You can see for yourself this combination of brass and copper. What a nice warm look. Beautiful solid wood center rail with 6 matching stylized deco leave pattern arms. On top of each arm is this sculptural figure and profile of an art deco stylized nude woman feeding her friendly gazelle. This is a special piece, there are some numbers on the metal, but you can tell it was not designed for the masses. The glass is also very interesting a nice opalescent color which is also referred to as icicle glass because it looks like ice is frozen with its contrasting clear and frosted technique. A very nice original piece.
It is time to get back to these great French lights. This is an odd piece. Obviously a very vertical design, with original Fer forge quality, circa 1925 and outstanding design. The glass is signed Sabino, a bit hard to read (or hard to photograph) but trust me, its there. I love this glass and it certainly shows that great period when Sabino was doing some very original designs, showing the transition from curve to linear. His work at that time rivaled any French lighting and glass designer of the period. What makes this one so unique is the vertical treatment which is halted in air with a fiery ball of glass, certainly in no way typical One really need the right place to hang this, but if you've got it, then you must have it.
The underside of the glass is decorated with a striking geometric design and all of the decoration is raised substantially in the moulding to create a remarkable three-dimensional effect. I have included several photographs of the fixture both lit and unlit that I hope clearly show the incredibly eye-catching effect of the design and the beautiful shape and colour of the glass. Original rope hanger, one bulb
This Streamline pendant light makes a bold statement in spacious stairways, foyers, dining rooms, and other common areas. The body, pendant and canopy are of gleaming chrome and bear a striking aerodynamic design. This fixture has a frosted glass lens in the center, but the saucer-like dimensions of the chrome shade bounce most of your usable light off of the ceiling. We currently have two of these fixtures.
Metal lovers rejoice! Here's a graceful 1940s Art Deco copper and brass chandelier that will brighten any room - lit or not. The body, curved arms and finial and rail motif are of a beautifully patinated brass while the Modernist shades and canopy are made of glorious copper. There are five shades for light as well as two more sockets tucked away within the body of the fixture for a total of seven bulbs. This is a larger chandelier and as such would be perfect in a dining room or other larger room in your home.
A fabulous French deco streamline alabaster and chrome chandelier. Fantastic warm colours to the alabaster with beautiful dark veining that really comes alive when it's switched on , anything that looks like a crack is the natural striations in the alabaster - this colour alabaster is impossible to get now. Chrome on bronze fittings with some great details like the stepped canopy and the two discs at the bottom terminating in a chrome ball , all chrome is original and in great condition.
Has a fitting to take two bulbs, I only used small low wattage bulbs for my pictures otherwise they just come out too dark, light has been fully rewired and in perfect working order. It's a nice size too at 20" drop/height X 18" diameter so perfect for an entrance porch/hallway or smaller room.
A handsome and streamlined chandelier made of copper and thick heavily pebbled glass. Great Art Deco streamlines with just the right amount of detail. The body of the chandelier is made of a beautiful coppered metal that has developed a noble patina with age. The glass possesses a thick pale green-hued edge which glows strikingly when illuminated.
Very unusual 1930's hanging light fixture. Machine Age, but still with a very stylized art deco point of view.
Materials are copper/nickel quite unique and completely original.
This is an exceptional French chandelier that has been beautifully crafted in glass, and dates from the 1930's Art Deco modernist period. The acid etched lines in the frosted glass and the delicate peach color sides compliment the geometric shape. This chandelier would look glamorous in a deco bedroom or fit seamlessly in a room furnished in contemporary modern. Although this chandelier is unsigned I believe it to be crafted by Petitot.
There is something particularly glamorous about this light, with its chrome design and gorgeous pink glass shades. Imagine this chandelier in a master-bedroom, or even a dining room - it would be a welcome addition to any home.
An unusual French chandelier, circa 1928, crafted of bronze with charming buttery color glass bells.
There are a pair of these fantastic ceiling lights.Designed by Kem Weber for the Miller Lamp Company, circa 1930's. This light is pictured in many books on American Art Deco and the Machine Age.
Stunning modernist style chandelier, French 1930's. A partially frosted glass disc surrounds a chrome center, giving the piece a streamline and modern look.
Here is a fantastic restored French chandelier that may be one of the nicest modernist pieces we have ever had. It was recently surfaced into our inventory and I am very excited to offer this piece for sales. Signed of course Des Hanots, like a beautiful flower with many petals opening to the sun. The quality of light is fantastic and I am sure this will make a huge addition to your home or office. New plating and all original glass. Merci merci merci.
Art Deco "Mueller" like but not signed. Nice geometric glass in nickel plated metal finish.
