Noverdy Art Deco light fixture France c1930
This is a superb Noverdy Art Deco light from around 1930 and is in moulded glass and bronze.
The shade has a moulded pattern of grapes and leaves in acid frosted glass. It’s signed along the edge, “Noverdy France Deposé.”
The suspension is a substantial bronze chain fitting. The studs have winged neo-classical faces and meet in an acanthus leaf ceiling rose. The ceiling rose has a hidden hook for hanging the light fixture.
Diameter 15 inches
Depth approx 4 inches
Total drop 21 inches
It’s in excellent condition. The light doesn’t come with wiring, but you may want to use the brass bayonet bulb socket which we include. To ensure the light looks its best, you should pass the wiring through the links of the chain.
Jean Noverdy was based in Dijon. In the late 1920s and ’30s, he produced high quality colourful glass and moulded glass lights and lamps. Comparisons with Mueller Frères, Degué and Schneider are justified, but Noverdy was a more smaller affair, so there are fewer examples.
