French 1930s Crystal Hot Air Balloon Chandelier Attributed to Baguès
French 1930s chandelier composed of latticed crystal wrapped around a bulbous gilt metal frame in the form of a hot air balloon from which strands of beaded crystal extend over eight curved arms and a suspended lower basket finial. Baguès was born in Auvergne around 1840 and became famous internationally as a creator of art lighting. In the beginning it specialized in liturgical bronze and the company quickly developed by the end of the 19th century thanks to bronze lighting brought about by the generalization of electricity. During the 1920s, Victor and Robert Baguès enlarged the bronze lighting collection of their father and created their own iron models: the range Baguès is composed of Parrots & Foliage chandeliers and wall sconces. Since 1860, The Maison Baguès, has been located in the center of Paris and specializes in the creation of luxury lighting. Early on, it became the emblem of French savoir-faire in lighting and wrought-iron work, along with French craftsmanship, which is highly valued internationally.
