An atypical chandelier from the 1900s in copper, opaline and silk. The design close to the work of Belgian artists like Henry Van de Velde or Victor Horta from the Art Nouveau movement. Composed of hammered copper scrolls, it illuminates its environment with 5 opalines in the upper part and is extended with a pleated silk shade. The composition is very contemporary for its time. It is when the world discovered electricity, and redesigned its new forms around Edison bulbs in 1900.

The Art Nouveau 1900-1920 style is based on the aesthetic of curved and natural lines as a reaction to the industrial era in which it was born. It is also a new and resolutely modern style in the face of incessant repetition of older styles during the 19th century. Distributed at the same time in a large part of the world, it is called Tiffany in the United States, Jugendstil in Germany, Sezessionstil in Austria, Nieuwe Kunst in the Netherlands, Liberty in Italy, Modernismo in Spain, Sapin in Switzerland and Modern in Russia. The greatest artists in terms of Lighting are Guimard, Tiffany, Mazzucotelli…
Ce lustre atypique en cuivre, opaline et soie est dans la mouvance des artistes belges de l'Art Nouveau comme Henry Van de Velde ou Victor Horta. Composé de volutes de cuivre martelé, il éclaire son environnement par 5 opalines en partie haute et probablement une table par un abat-jour en soie plissé. Composition très contemporaine vers 1900 alors que le monde découvrait l'électricité et redessinait ses nouvelles formes autour des ampoules Edison.

Le style Art Nouveau 1900-1920 s’appuie sur l’esthétique des lignes courbes et naturelles comme en réaction face a l’ère industrielle dans laquelle il est né. C’est aussi un style nouveau et résolument moderne face à la répétion incessante des styles anciens au XIXe siècle. Répandu au même moment dans une grande partie du monde, il s’appelle Tiffany aux États-Unis, Jugendstil en Allemagne, Sezessionstil en Autriche, Nieuwe Kunst aux Pays-Bas, Liberty en Italie, Modernismo en Espagne, Sapin en Suisse et Modern en Russie. Les plus grands artistes en terme de Luminaires sont Guimard, Tiffany, Mazzucotelli…
