A rare 1930-35 French art deco chandelier by the famous French lamp firm of Charles Ranc. The shade in thick pressed-moulded opalescent glass in a geometrical pattern is typical for the Ranc production of the late 30s and 40s. The company started in 1909. After the first worldwar this Paris based company (rue Amelot, Bastille) became succesfull with a line of lighting in neo-classical style. Often gilded bronze fixtures holding coloured glass-paste Schneider shades. Around 1930 they changed into a more modernist look. Nickel plated bronze or coppered brass mountings using opalescent shades of the EZAN glass factory. of Etablissement Jean Gauthier Almost all these shades are either unsigned or signed Ezan france. The bowl on offer is an exception. Its a model exclusively produced for Ranc and it is signed on the rim Ranc freres france. It is 35 cm in diameter and the chandelier has a drop of 45.5 cm. It's in excellent condition. The nickeled bronze fixture is replated. The lamp comes rewired and holds a european E27 socket. For the USA I will replace it for an American standard one.
