French 1940s Gilt Metal Chandelier Attrib. To Baguès
French 1940s gilt metal chandelier with eight scroll design arms and gilt metal flowers trimmed with crystal leaves. Attributed to Baguès. 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.
