Degué - French art deco lamp

Degué - French art deco lamp
France - ca. 1930

A nice French art deco lamp in wrought iron made around 1930. The forged base holds a signed shade in clear frosted moulded-pressed glass produced by Degué. This model is represented as shade #532 in the old Degué product catalog.
The lamp is in very good condition. The iron base has a nice egg gloss appearance and deep-brown patina. The lamp is 36,2 cm high.

It is rewired with new cloth covered twisted cord and is equiped with a stylish brass and porcelain E14 socket so you will have no difficulties finding suitable bulbs for it. Originaly old French lamps had B22 bayonet sockets. But they are very unpractical. Good quality modern light bulbs are hardly available. And for professional restorers 90 years old sockets are forbidden to use. So I wire lamps as these with E14 sockets for which bulbs are widely available. For European countries I will add a 15 watt bulb. For the States or Japan I will rewire the lamp with a US candelabra base socket and US 2-prong plug. The Degué catalog is of coarse no part of this sale.

Safe packaging guaranteed : As specialized restorer of French art Deco lighting for over 20 years I ship my parcels worldwide with the fragile items well protected and fully insured.
