Lot 0874 Details

French Art Deco Molded Glass and Brass Five-Light Chandelier, 1930-1940, attributed to Maurice Model, each piece of glass molded "Verdun, France" at its edge, the central bowl with etched glass panels depicting poppies, the brass frame adorned with incised lozenges, the four arms extending to lights and shades in like decor, h. 29-1/2", dia. 29-1/2". Maurice Model established a cristallerie in Verdun in 1930, producing chandeliers and art glass objects. Verdun, located in France's glass-making area, would have provided ready access to skilled artisans, with Nancy, home to the Daum and Galle factories, some 60 miles away, and Wingen-sur-Moder, home to Lalique, about 100 miles away. The Model glassworks remained in operation until June 15, 1940, when destroyed by WWII bombs. A school now stands on the site.
In very good condition. One panel has a rim flake hidden by the frame, but there are no other cracks, chips or restoration. The metal has patina commensurate with its use.
