Pair of French Sconces by Maison Arlus

About

Three beautifully elegant wall lights and a pendant by Arlus France. Good, fully original, unrestored. Together with companies like Disderot, Lunel and Rispal, the Paris based firm Maison Arlus had a strong influence on the modernization of French lighting design during the 1950s. The Arlus models were obviously rooted in French Art Deco on the one hand, but show clear similarities with designs of Italian counterparts like Stilnovo and Arredoluce as well. These lantern shaped models tend more towards the French tradition, as they show strong resemblance with the work of contemporary designers like Jean Royere, Mathieu Mategot and Andre Arbus. Literature: - Arlus Advertisement, 1950s (this original advertisement will be supplied to the purchaser of the lamps) Since this light was produced and acquired in France it is equipped with original bayonet sockets. Rewiring is strongly recommended as well.
