A striking French Art Deco chandelier in iron and frosted cut glass, signed by Degue, circa 1930. The centerpiece is a large bowl of frosted glass cut into numerous angles, with three stylized rosettes and their leaves being framed by more subtle leaf motif decoration. A frame of hammered, texturized iron encircles the bowl and has three sets of raised scrolls along the top to meet the three arms supporting additional lights. All of these arms have more scrollwork and a series of delicate metal petals to act as bobeches. Above these petals are three frosted glass cups that echo the angled leaf motif from the wider bowl, all cut with classic Art Deco lines. The canopy consists of a hammered iron plate with curled corners, under which there are accenting scrolls. Three iron posts taper down to connect the canopy with the base, reinforcing the strong angular design. Four lights total, one in the center bowl and one in each of the three outer cups, all use candelabra base bulbs.
Condition: Rewired to US standards. Tiny chip on rim of one glass light. Few rust spots on metal.
