Exceptional Chandelier by Maxime Old, 1946

About

Maxime Old (1910-1991). Exceptional and probably one-of-a-kind bronze eight-light chandelier with eight arms diffusing lights through original lampshades. Two tones of brass and patinated bronze lightly oxidized, make this chandelier a perfect combination of colors with the same material. When the chandelier is turned on, at night, different colors of the bronze appear to get different patinas. France, circa 1946. Literature: Maxime Old, Norma Editions, 2000, P.109. We thank Olivier Old, Maxime Old's son very much to have kindly confirmed the authenticity of the chandelier. After researches in the archives, Olivier old can affirm that so far, only one chandelier is located among the Artist production, it's ours! It probably comes from a special order to Maxime Old. Newly fully rewired for use in the US. Measurements: Chandelier: H 34" x W 44" x W 21"1/2.
