A high quality wrought iron art deco lamp by François CARION the famous Brussels based Belgian blacksmith 1884 -? The forged iron base in an exceptional shape is signed F. Carion and holds a large Schneider signed shade in orange mottled glass paste. An authentic lamp that can be dated around 1925. It is in excellent condition. 34,6 cm high (13-5/8). The Schneider shade has a diameter of 18.9cm (7-7/16) and a height of 15,9cm. On one of the pictures I show it next to a regular size schneider shade to give you an idea of the proportions. The lamp is rewired with new rayon covered twisted cord and it holds its old european E14 socket. For the US I will wire the lamp with a US candelabra base socket and US 2-prong plug. I can also wire for Australia. The revival of wrought iron by the beginning of the 20th century was not in the last place caused by the inventions of new techniques develloped by blacksmiths like Edgard Brandt and others. In Belgium the road was paved by two famous “ferronnier d’art” and each of them created a school of followers. Over the years more then 200 young men became master in the arts working in the company of van Boeckel and many of them later had their own successfull workshop. Van Boeckel already wellknown, he was commissioned to make the gates of the Whitehouse in Washington, was at the top of his carreer in 1900 when he won amongst 378 blacksmiths from all over the world the highest decoration at the worldexhibition in Paris in 1900. As for François Carion 1884-? The Brussels based smith being the top of Belgian art déco. For 16 years he was a teacher at the ecole industrielle of Sint-Gilles (Brussels) yet stopped teaching when he lost his right hand in an accident and specialized in the production of small pieces like lamps mirrors candle-sticks iron mounts for stoneware vases and small tables. Check out over 250 other French art deco lamps in my shop. Visit my store: paravas com. 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.
