A rare 1933-39 french art deco chandelier by the famous Paris based company of Georges Leleu. The shade in thick pressed-moulded opalescent glass in a geometrical pattern combined with the design of the chromed solid brass fixture gives a wonderful modernist look to this hard to find Leleu model. The opalescent semi-crystal bowl is milky bluish when the light shines on it and shows beautiful tones of amber when light is shining through, as we know from the best opalescent glasses like pieces by Sabino Lalique Verlys or Ezan. I show you a picture of the 1933 G.Leleu poster representing the same bowl in a cheaper version, normal glass and simple fixture. The chandelier on offer is 51cm high and the bowl has a diameter of 34,5cm. The bowl is signed G.Leleu on the inside of the bowl. The chandelier is in very good condition. The original chrome plating shows only minor traces of wear. A more than acceptable condition for 80 years old plating. The lamp is rewired with three european E14 sockets. For the US or Japan I will place three American candelabra base ones.
