Art Deco French Chandelier by Petitot Circa 1930 (ANT-1310)

ANT-1310  Art Deco French Chandelier by Petitot Circa 1930

A nice 1930-1935 French art deco chandelier...Nickel plated...by the famous Paris based company Petitot holding 5 clear and frosted glass Art Deco Ezan-style shades. These shades are sometimes called “dripping ice” and it’s truly iconic for good early French lighting.

The 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 with shades from the best French glass factories such as Muller Freres and 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).

The surface finish does show very minor signs of age. We just cleaned it up a little with a mild soap. If you wish a more perfect finish other than antique, you can make that decision...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 a bit shorter than American shades so the bulbs often show above the rim. We believe that we have cured that by installing a chandelier E-12 socket within the original French/British-style socket so that American bulbs can be used while still maintaining the correct mounting of the shades.

Note that the center stem-cone DOES have bulbs to light up the glass attachments (a very neat and hard to find element.) Those sockets are also American chandelier bulbs types. You can power them up or down by choosing the wattage of the bulb.

All work was accomplished in our UL shop and is now totally up to American UL standards using American bulbs and power. It even installs with a re-worked UL approved standard crossbar, which will be supplied.

Measurements:  Diameter:  30”.  Height:  34”.  Shade diameter:  8”.

A standard US mounting kit will be provided.

Bargain Price: $3,750. We say “bargain” because, if you shop around, you will find that this quality of French chandelier will often be selling for double this price without the improvements or re-wiring. A shipping charge must be added for crates and carriage.
