$7,500per set

About

A pair of Regency style Maison Bagues three branch wall sconce or wall lights, each with splays of flowerheads on top, its back plate issuing three S-shaped candle arms hang with drops and beautifully arranged crystal flowers. Since its establishment in 1860, the Maison Bagues has been an emblem of French sophistication in luxury lighting design. The master metalsmith Noe¨l Bague's founded the company as specialists in liturgical bronzes, but by 1880 the company had expanded into the production of bronze light fixtures in response to the development of electrical lighting. Carried on by Noe¨l’s son Euge'ne and grandsons Victor and Robert, Maison Bague's continued to progress. Noted for their high end handcrafted work, such as complex carved sconces and hand-strung crystal chandeliers, Maison Bague's appealed to an elite clientele. Its products have been featured in luxury hotels like Paris's George V, and the Savoy in London. There is a further identical pair of Maison Bagues wall sconce available on 1stdibs. They all fit the Maison Bagues chandelier, also available on 1stdibs.

About the Maker

Maison Baguès

Since its establishment in 1860, the Maison Baguès has been an emblem of French sophistication in luxury lighting design. Each piece the firm makes is hand-assembled using traditional techniques in order to emphasize the elegance and excellence of their detailed artisanal work. Still the epitome of savoir-faire, Maison Baguès’ luxurious pieces are prized for their craftsmanship, beauty and harmony. The master metalsmith Noël Baguès founded the company as specialists in liturgical bronzes, but by 1880 the company had expanded into the production of bronze light fixtures in response to the development of electrical lighting. Carried on by Noël’s son Eugène and grandsons Victor and Robert, Maison Baguès continued to progress, adding intricately detailed iron lighting collections in the 1920s as well as stair banisters, gates and accessory tables. Baguès began selling internationally in the interwar period, expanding the company’s operation to New York, Rome and Cairo. Noted for their high-end handcrafted work, such as complex carved sconces and hand-strung crystal chandeliers, Maison Baguès appealed to an elite clientele. While Baguès’ Art Deco crystal lighting fixtures drew the most attention, the company was also known for bespoke metalwork that drew commissions from important interior designers and decorating firms such as Maison Jansen and Raymond Subes. The idiosyncratic genius Armand-Albert Rateau used Maison Baguès accessories to decorate the interiors of Jeanne Lanvin’s town home in 1928. Maison Baguès products have also been featured in luxury hotels like Paris's George V and the Savoy in London. Today, Maison Baguès continues its history of delicate, detailed work and devotes much of its enterprise to preserving the company’s heritage through restoration. Their efforts are worth it. As you will see on 1stDibs, Maison Baguès remains the last word in classic French lighting and metalwork.
