Maison Baguès Brass and Glass Bar Two-Tiered Cart, 1950s

About

A fabulous midcentury brass and glass two-tiered bar cart attributed to Maison Baguès, circa 1950. Fluted brass frame, legs and handles. Each end has its own decorated handle, fluted at the center with textured and gracefully curled scrolls that connect them to finials atop each leg. Both tiers have fluted brass galleries attached to the frame by brass spindles. The bottom shelf has a three count bottle holder connected to the gallery by scrolled brass work. Brass ball screws affix the frames and galleries to the legs. The cart rolls smoothly on four scroll-embellished brass wheels with rubber tires. Both tiers are 25" long and 15.25" wide. The glass is fixed and not removable. Floor to top shelf is 25", 9" to the lower shelf.

About Maison Baguès (Designer)

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 hand crafted 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 these pages, Maison Baguès remains the last word in classic French lighting and metalwork.
