French Art Deco 5 Light Ezan Icicle Chandelier - Rewired for LED (ANT-479)

ANT-479  Energy Efficient LED Rewired Antique French Art Deco Chandelier

A nice 1930 - 1935 French Art Deco chandelier...Nickel Plated over the famous Paris based company Petitot, holding 5 clear and frosted glass Art Deco Ezan style hades.

These shades are sometimes called "Dripping Ice," and are truly iconic for good early French lighting.  The bottom shade differs just slightly from the arm shades...which we have seen a few times before.

The bronze maker Antonin Petitot started his company in 1878.  His son Henri took over in 1917.  He sold his lights to lamp shops all over France, as well as Europe and the United States.  In the early days of Art Deco, they produced precious fixtures in high quality bronze with shades from the best French glass factories, such as Muller Freres, Degué, and then later...Ezan Glass Company.   In the late 30's they changed their style and produced lights in a modernist look.  These beautiful chandeliers had shades of the highest quality of either Muller Freres or Ezan Glass Company (attributed).

Nickel Plated Finish:  We have not polished this original finish; we just cleaned it up a little with a mild soap.  If you wish a bright nickel, you can polish it with a nice silver polish...but if you want it to look antique, that finish is here already.

One small problem with these gorgeous French chandeliers is the height of the shades.  They are shorter than American shades, so the bulbs often show above the rim.  We modified that by installing a G9 socket for LED bulbs, so a more powerful G9 LED bulb can be used without peeking over the rim of the bowl.  Gives more than ample light for these great shades.   We supplied a picture of this re-wire from another French chandelier--ANT-496--but the process, and final appearance, is identical.

G9 sockets are installed by removing the old European guts of the socket while maintaining the outside brass housing.  Then the G9 socket is installed directly INSIDE the original brass housing, thereby allowing the original housing to continue to hold the shades...just like when they were made.   We have both color G9 bulbs and can supply either a Bright White 5000°K bulb, or a Warm White 2700°K more incandescent looking bulb when you purchase the chandelier...and yes...replacement bulbs are readily available.
