French mid century Asselbur George Jouve chandelier with Mategot lampshade Rigitulle
Collaboration de la Maison Asselbur et du célèbre céramiste Georges Jouve (1910-1964).
This French modernist chandelier made in the 1950's is the result of George Jouve collaboration with Asselbur including a Mategot Lampshade (with its trademark rigitulle , see attached picture ) , you can Google to find several example on other dealer's sites. Jouve worked on several sea creature theme including a Mermaid so this sea horse ceramic piece is a natural fit for his artistry. The texture and finish is totally in line with his creation . The Mategot touch is not surprising since they created a series of standing ashtray and light together. The combination of classical French design and modernist style will create a warm contrast in any mid century interior or classical set up.
Size H.17 x W.19 lamp shade , good antique condition
