Set of Six Marcel Bever Art Deco Mask Wall Lights

About

Exceedingly rare collection of six unique wall mounted porcelain masks mounted in fer forge frames, all signed M. Bever Paris, Made in France, circa 1925. The iron frames are stamped 'France' and were made to be electrified and illuminated with a single candelabra size lightbulb, causing the porcelain faces to be illuminated from behind. Note that on two of the faces (the middle of top and bottom row of main image) the porcelain is perforated. Edgar Brandt is know to have designed wrought iron for Maison Robj, for whom Marcel Bever designed many ceramics. Two masks retain their original brass socket circa 1925. We will re-lamp the other four. Please let us know if you would rather have period brass sockets or new UL certified E12 porcelain sockets. Also, please specify the length of cord required for each unless hardwiring is intended. Marcel Bever was a ceramicist who created decorative objects and bibelots for Robj and Aladin Paris in the 1920s and 1930s. He was also a friend of Corbusier. (There is a watercolor of a man and woman in an interior by Corbusier dated 1949 and dedicated to Marcel Bever). He also did set design for the theater. Provenance: from the private collection of Mark Feldman and Corey Warn of Antiquers III in Boston, MA, who were notable dealers in French Art Deco. Signée M. BÉVER Paris et marquée Made in France Dimensions shown are for the male devil mask. Dimensions vary per mask. Sold as a set of six. Price is for the set.
