Galery Freres Art Deco bronzed wall lights

These absolutely fabulous bronzed metal wall lights were made by Galery Freres in the 1930s. Basically each wall light is a large lipped bowl with a flat back. Attached to the back of the bowl is a plaque on top of which is an arched piece of metal that extends over the back and across the top of the bowl. There are two circular pieces of white opaque domed glass that fit into the bottom of each bowl so that the light from the two bulbs in side the bowls goes down as well as up. The insides of the bowl are painted to reflect the light. These ARE the best wall lights that we have ever had.

Similar wall lights to these were exhibited at an exhibition in 1937: See Guillaume Janneau: "Le Luminaire Art Deco Lampen 1925 - 1937" p. 399 & 401

Approximate dimensions:
Weight: 13lbs 1.5ozs - 5936gms
Height: 9.65ins - 24.5cms
Width: 13.39ins - 34cms
Depth: 11.02ins - 28cms

Condition:
Very good with some scratches to the surface and some foxing to the rims of the domed glass
Not wired but will take ordinary bayonet bulbs
The insides of the bowls appear to have been repainted at some time (not by us) and the light fittings have probably been replaced as I suspect the originals would have taken large Edison screw bulbs
