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
