About this item

Maison Jansen sconces crystal beads, brass arms, Lucite bobeches with mirror back, 1940`ca, French.

Both lights have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the vintage patina. Newly rewired, earthed, in full working order & ready to install. Light bulbs included. It is possible to install these lights in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. They can be used with a dimmer.

The Modern Neoclassical design excuted in brass, mirror & Lucite with faceted crystal beads are features of the designs by Maison Jansen, the attributed designer.

Elegant & timeless these lights are a Modern take on the Louis XVI style. This pared down Neoclassical look and addition of new materials such as Lucite was characteristic of the 1940`s.

Each sconce has a mirror back on brass plate which adds depth and interesting reflections. From the centre there are two arms each finishing with a light, plastic candle cover & Lucite bobeche. Faceted crystal beads decorate the base, bobeches and string between the mirror & arms. The result is gentle reflections and femine draping.

Each has a pull cord switch dangling from the bottom. This is brass finished with a brass acorn. It is possible to remove this if preferred.

There is an enameled metal bracket to screw to the wall on which the mirror back slides in place. This attachment brings the light from the wall adding to the sense of depth.

Each light carries 2 standard small screw light bulbs (E14) up to 40 Watts each. Presently fitted with standard candle shape clear 25 Watts light bulbs, which are included in this price. These lights could take other E14 shape light bulbs.

These lights are in good condition. The mirror surfaces, Lucite & candle covers have no chips and only minor marks in line with age. The brass has aged patina which adds character. All the crystal beads are present and in excellent condition.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. For safe transport each would be bubble wrapped with an outer layer of card. The mirror surfaces & crystal beads would be reinforced. Together these pieces would fit nicely into a box for shipping.

Additional dimensions:

The dimensions of the mirror back are Height: 22 cm, Width: 14.5 cm.
