It's a beautiful mod. El produced for H&V by Holophane (verreries des Hanots and Verlys). Hettier & Vincent was a well-known french lighting company.With a high quality finish of their lamp fixtures their chandeliers are now much sought after items. They produced lamps for the top end of the market and had itheir shop at the prestigeous and beautiful Place de Vosges in Paris - the groundfloor of number 7. The chandelier has a drop of 79 cm (31-1/8") and it's 60 cm wide (23-5/8"). I can remove a part of the chain and reduce the drop some 2 inches. The chandelier is in excellent condition. I have renickeled and patinated the fixture and it comes rewired. The chandelier holds six european candelabra size E14 sockets. For the US I will place new US candelabra base ones. The signature on this model shades is very close to the hole for the socket. When the shades came out of the mould these socket holes were grinded into shape and often the signature got lost or only traces of it remained visible (see last picture). The six shades are in very good condition. In general glasses made by verreries des Hanots often show irregularities like very small hairlines or air bubbles due to the production proces. When you make an offer please let me know to which country I must send the lamp so that I can calculate my best price. Check out over 300 other French art deco lamps in my shop. Art deco lamps made in France were equiped with B22 bayonet sockets. For most countries like Europe or the US such sockets are practicaly impossible to use.
For instance in the States 110 volt bulbs with B22 fitters are obscure, very hard to find and only one model bulb in very limited wattages is available. In spite of what sellers of unrestored pieces of poor quality claim in their ads when they offer lamps with bayonet caps sockets : except for the UK and Australia French chandeliers and lamps need to be rewired for your country. In order to fit Edison large or small screw base bulbs as used in the USA, B22 sockets have to be replaced by American candelabra base or standard/medium size Edison screw-in sockets. E14 and E27 are modern replacements for European countries. An additional complication is that the size thread used in early French lighting to connect the sockets to the chandelier mountings or lamp bases is not compatible with the modern size threads used in the USA and Europe.
New American or European sockets do not just screw on to the old lamp fixtures. In order to make it possible to use an original old French chandelier or lamp with modern screw bulb bases, a specialized restorer will have to re-tap the threads. All my cleaned and restored chandeliers, sconces and lamps come rewired with the correct sockets you will need to use modern bulbs in your country.
