Beautiful and rare stylish antique 1920s/30s Ezan decorative French copper ceiling light complete with a choice of x2 original stunning glass circular discs in pink or pale green with beautiful etched designs. This very beautiful original light once hung in a prominent town house in Brighton. It had been bought new in Paris by the original owners. Very unusual to have survived all these years in-tact with the original fragile decorative glass discs or halos crowning the ceiling light.
It also comes with a separate original small detached opaque disc, or halo which sits within the copper light fitting base. The artisan glassmaker, Jean Gauthier had his first workshop at 12-14 rue Jean Robert in Paris and later expended with factories in the town of Ezanville, hence the name of the company. In the early days just after the first world war Gauthier made cameo shades that were sometimes signed Gauthier. The plants in Ezanville were opened for the production of art deco glassware in molded-pressed glass. Many art deco models are unsigned.Some are signed EJG for Etablissements Jean Gauthier. Gauthier based on the street name of the first workshop. And 30s Gauthier started a line of light shades. Others are signed EZAN France, signature for Gauthier based on the city where he based himself eventually. A stunning piece of original Art Deco decorative lighting oozing quality and style.
Inter-changeable glass halo discs with a choice of a light olive or pinkish colour, each measuring 44cm in diameter (the pinkish one has a deliberate makers break in it). Opaque glass small disc is 15.5cm diameter. Copper light fitting is 42cm height x 25cm diameter of base. Some old paint marks at top of copper column.
Some discolouring to copper commensurate with age but adds to the beautiful overall patina. Due to its fragility I would prefer collection from Worthing/Lancing area on the South Coast, West Sussex. I could post or courier but it would be totally at buyers risk.
Please get in touch for further enquiries before purchasing. I also have another similar larger and more elaborate Art Deco Ezan light from the same source (see photograph), which is listed separately.
