Noverdy - French Art Deco lamp

Noverdy - French Art Deco lamp
France - Ca. 1930

A nice French art deco lamp in wrought iron made around 1925-1930. The forged iron base holds a coloured shade in mottled glass produced by Noverdy. It has the usual Noverdy France signature done in acid. Jean Noverdy (for Nouvelles Verreries de Dijon) was a retailer and lamp shades manufacturer in Dijon France.
The lamp is 33,4 cm high. It's in good condition. The deep-brown almost black wrought iron base has a nice egg gloss appearance.

It is wired 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. I will add a 15 watt bulb.

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.
