A beautiful and very rare French art deco lamp in nickel plated bronze holding a bowl in clear frosted moulded-pressed glass. The shade is signed Hettier et Vincent on the rim. This model was produced for H&V by the glass manufatory.

Like Verlys one of the brands of the large Holophane glass company. The authentic Hettier et Vincent base is of excellent quality.

It can be seen in one of their old product catalog (supplement #1 plate 125).. The catalog is no part of this sale. The lamp is 36 cm high (14,17 inches), And the bowl has a diameter of 25 cm (9-27/32). The lamp is in very good condition.

The base still has its original nickel plating without much wear. It turned mat over the years and has a nice patina. I have rewired the lamp with stylish cloth covered twisted cord and internal heat resistant wire. It now holds a European E14 socket. For the USA Canada or Japan I will wire it with an American candelabra base socket and US 2-prong plug. Check out over 300 other French art deco lamps in my shop.

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.
