MOUSSON A LARGE FRENCH ART DECO LAMP HANOTS. Lampe degué daum era 1930 France
During the interbellum the large glass company Holophane made pressed glass lamp shades with their brand Verreries des Hanots and glass vases tableware with the brand Verlys. The lamp is made by Auguste Mousson. Mousson was a small bronzier in Paris. Old records from the 20s learned me that just after the first world war A. Mousson’ manufacture de bronzes d’art de tous styles pour ameublement’ was located at 23-25 rue des Vignoles. Two streets south from the famous père Lachaise cemetery. In the 30s he moved his workshop some blocks south to 41-43 rue de Buzenval. I visited the place to ask if they had some forgotten boxes with archives in their cellar or attic. It sometimes works though and I run into grandgrandchildren of old craftsmen.. It is 53,7 cm high (21,15 inches) and the bowl has a diameter of 21 cm (8-1/4). Both base and shade show stylized flowers and fruits contained in angular blocks. A beautiful match of base and shade. This rare model Hanots bowl is never signed yet represented in the old Holophane-Hanots product catalog. The base has the A. Mousson signature carved in the bronze. Originaly this base was silver plated. The thin silver coating is almost completely gone. Only small traces of it still remained. The lamp is in good condition. I cleaned and rewired it. For the USA Canada or Japan it holds an American candelabra base socket and US 2-prong plug. For European countries I will place a E14 socket. The catalogs are of coarse no part of this sale. Check out over 300 other French art deco lamps in my shop. French lamps and wiring. Art deco lamps made in France were equiped with B22 bayonet sockets. For most countries like Europe or the US such sockets are practicaly impossible to use. For instance in the States 110 volt bulbs with B22 fitters are obscure, very hard to find and only one model bulb in very limited wattages is available. In spite of what sellers of unrestored pieces of poor quality claim in their ads when they offer lamps with bayonet caps sockets : except for the UK and Australia French chandeliers and lamps need to be rewired for your country. In order to fit Edison large or small screw base bulbs as used in the USA, B22 sockets have to be replaced by American candelabra base or standard/medium size Edison screw-in sockets. E14 and E27 are modern replacements for European countries. An additional complication is that the size thread used in early French lighting to connect the sockets to the chandelier mountings or lamp bases is not compatible with the modern size threads used in the USA and Europe. New American or European sockets do not just screw on to the old lamp fixtures. In order to make it possible to use an original old French chandelier or lamp with modern screw bulb bases, a specialized restorer will have to re-tap the threads. All my cleaned and restored chandeliers, sconces and lamps come rewired with the correct sockets you will need to use modern bulbs in your country.
