This billiard chandelier, characteristic of the American "Arts and Crafts" or "prairie" movement, comes from a California home. Luminaries were handcrafted in beautiful metals, adorned with shades of glass or mica to temper the harsh light, and became important artistic additions to interiors. This rectangular chandelier, made of copper and leaded glass and yellow colored glass, is related to the works of Dard Hunter, for Roycroft, made in the 1910s/1920s. Other artists of this movement are Gustave Stickley, Greene and Greene, Elizabeth Eaton Burton or Louis Sullivan who magnified the chandeliers by using beautiful materials such as wood, metal, glass, mica, shells and ceramics. These rare and stunning works of art from the dawn of the modern era still shine today as successful combination of technology and good design.
Ce lustre de billard, caractéristique du mouvement américain "Arts and Crafts" ou "prairie" , provient d’une maison Californienne. Les luminaires sont alors fabriqués à la main dans de beaux métaux, ornés de nuances de verre ou de mica pour tempérer la lumière crue, et deviennent d'importants compléments artistiques aux intérieurs. Ce lustre rectangulaire en cuivre et verres de couleur jaune et verre sertis au plomb, est à rapprocher des oeuvres de Dard Hunter, pour Roycroft, réalisées dans les années 1910/1920. Les autres artistes de ce mouvement sont Gustave Stickley, Greene and Greene, Elizabeth Eaton Burton ou Louis Sullivan qui ont magnifié les luminaires en utilisant les matériaux magnifiques comme le bois, le métal, le verre, le mica, les coquillages et la céramique. Ces œuvres d'art rares et étonnantes datant de l'aube de l'ère moderne brillent encore aujourd'hui comme des mariages réussis entre la technologie et le bon design.
