Pair of Sconces by Blasset & Guggiari, France 1957

About

Blasset Jean & Guggiari André Extremely rare pair of sconces coming from one of the last legal gambling club open in Paris, the " Club Anglais " ( The English Club ) This club created in 1918 by an association of American, Australian and British army pilots, did not have unfortunately the time to celebrate its 100th Anniversary it closed its business recently. We acquired  in this " Casino " all the gaming tables, Poker, Blackjack, Punto Banco (Baccarat), chairs, stools and lighting. These sconces are made in bronze-mounted on wood covered with black vinyl. Some of them are covered with black leather. The lampshades were in glass when they were in the casino but we decided to custom the lampshades to retrieve their original shape as they were in the 1950s, meaning in a conic shape covered with fabric. ( The sconces also come with the glass lampshades on demand ). Rewired for US, candelabra sockets. Literature:   Illustrated in Mobilier et Decoration #8 November 1957. Three pairs are available.
