The solid brass mounts hold two beautiful panels in clear frosted moulded-pressed glass by Noverdy in Dijon France. Both shades are signed Noverdy France Deposé on the inside of the shade. The sconces are 30,5 cm high (12") 32 cm wide (12,6 inches) and project some 11,5 cm (4-1/2") from the wall. I have renickeled and patinated the mounts. For the USA Canada or Japan I placed American candelabra base sockets.
For European countries I will wire with E14 ones. At the moment I have two pairs available. This sale is for one pair.NOVERDY - Verrerie des Vosges. In 1893 the glass factory Société anonyme des Verreries de Dijon was founded producing drinking glasses and other household glassware. In the early 20s the businessmen René and Jean Drouhot took over. And a production of lighting shades started. The name Noverdy or Noverdi was lanced being short for Nouvelle Verrerie de Dijon.
Noverdy was never registered as a company name. But the name Jean Noverdy was used as pseudonym of Jean and René Drouhot. In 1924 the brothers Jean and René also took over a glass factory in the village of Hoffmuhl Verrerie des Vosges. Old product catalogs of Verreries de Dijon do not exist. But Verrerie des Vosges issued at least one catalog.
In it moulded-pressed lighting shades are represented. Many models in this catalog are known both unsigned and signed Noverdy.A few models exist with a Verrerie des Vosges signature. Check out over 400 other French art deco lamps in my shop. Art deco lamps made in France were equiped with B22 bayonet sockets. For most countries like Europe or the US such sockets are practicaly impossible to use.
For instance in the States 110 volt bulbs with B22 fitters are obscure, very hard to find and only one model bulb in very limited wattages is available. In spite of what sellers of unrestored pieces of poor quality claim in their ads when they offer lamps with bayonet caps sockets : except for the UK and Australia French chandeliers and lamps need to be rewired for your country. In order to fit Edison large or small screw base bulbs as used in the USA, B22 sockets have to be replaced by American candelabra base or standard/medium size Edison screw-in sockets. E14 and E27 are modern replacements for European countries.
An additional complication is that the size thread used in early French lighting to connect the sockets to the chandelier mountings or lamp bases is not compatible with the modern size threads used in the USA and Europe. New American or European sockets do not just screw on to the old lamp fixtures.In order to make it possible to use an original old French chandelier or lamp with modern screw bulb bases, a specialized restorer will have to re-tap the threads. All my cleaned and restored chandeliers, sconces and lamps come rewired with the correct sockets you will need to use modern bulbs in your country.
