ANT-369  French Art Deco Signed Degué Ceiling Bowl Chandelier

The maker of the shade is Degué.  It is signed “Ros,” which was a synonym for the french art glass company known as Degué in Deco times.

Degué glass was destined for the collections of the few privileged Americans and French able to afford them.  These extravagant works were rarely seen outside the homes of such collectors, but influenced the taste and fashions of the day through their appearance in exhibitions and magazines of the late 1920's.  The glassware made up to 1930 was colourful, whereas the items made after 1930 were frosted and more subdued, in response to the Great Depression.

In 1936, due to the great strikes, the Degué glassworks stopped operating.  It was officially closed in 1939 at the outbreak of WWII.

The Degué center bowl of this chandelier is made out of Degué’s typically thick-walled, molded glass and shows a great, strict geometrical décor, as well as the pattern of grapes.  It is tinted a soft baby-blue with a frosted surface.   There are a couple of bubbles on the edge of the glass in one area, denoting the hand made nature of this Art Deco light.  It is signed “ROS” in script on one surface.

The metal of the frame is nickel plated.

This ceiling bowl has been totally re-wired in our UL listed workshop, with a new American socket cluster containing three sockets, and it is ready to go.

Measurements:  The overall height is 18”.  The maximum width (shade) is 13 1/2”.

$650.00 for the complete French Degué restored ceiling careful packaging and shipping.
