A large and very rare pair of authentic 1930 French art deco wall sconces in nickel plated solid brass or bronze holding two beautiful slip shades in frosted moulded-pressed glass by Degué. The Paris based (41 rue de Paradis) company of David Guéron was founded in 1926. Guéron employed the ceramist and designer Edouard Cazaux as his artistic director and head designer. In 1936 production stopped and the company finaly closed down in 1939. This model is represented in the old Degué product catalog as #524. It’s a very hard to find and sought after large model slip shade. Both are signed Degué. The sconces are 39 cm high (15,35″) 28,2 cm wide (11,1″) and 13,5 cm deep. They are in very good condition. I have renickeled and patinated the fixtures. The lamps come rewired. For the USA Canada or Japan I will wire them with American candelabra base sockets. For European countries I will place E14 ones. Check out over 300 other French art deco lamps in my shop. French lamps and wiring. 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.
