About

Super quality Maison Charles “lune” lamp designed by Jacques Charles in the 1960’s Ex Charles showroom model, circa 2000+ Wired for the North American market Provenance: Maison Charles, Paris Founded by Ernest Charles in 1908 under the name E.A. Charles, Charles Paris specializes in the reproduction of antique lighting. Over many years, the company has built a strong reputation among the bronze casting profession. The ’60s were marked by the huge success of the “Collection Inox” created by Jacques Charles. The collection has become an aesthetic reference for that period. The “Lune” lamp is one of the most iconic pieces from that period. In 2001, Maison Charles was taken over by Michael Wagner who became chairman of the company. The workshops were relocated to Saint-Denis (a northern suburb of Paris), in the premises of the former workshops of the famous silversmithing brand, Christofle. At the workshop, a handful of devoted craftsmen carry on a hundred years of exceptional know-how. A tradition of excellence that has become duty. Dictated by the passion of men concerned about dedicating their talent and expertise to design a unique lamp: a home jewel that sculpts light. Each piece is the work of a true master craftsman. Imagined, designed, poured, engraved, filed, polished, glazed, processed, degreased, varnished by talented craftsmen. A brilliant feat of craftsmanship carried out with the utmost care. Beyond time and style, quality and excellence constitutes Charles’ main value.
