My associate in France is an expat American historian of European Decorative Arts & museum curator, with 45 years of advanced experience. Dear friends & clients. Roy here in France seasons greetings on a dark New Year. Elly has more Fine Arts & Antiques than we can begin to keep up with at least 4,000 period pieces. Group photos will give you a slight idea of the depth of my collections, and Elly’s inventory – 800 new acquisitions, with more arriving almost daily – keep watching this page. Weather is getting worse in Europe my internet router has been replaced 8 times in 7 years, due to lightning, and needs to be replaced yet again. Delays from France are unavoidable; I have not been able to begin to keep up with photography it has been raining or snowing for 8 weeks. Four major storms have left 100,000 to 400,000 homes & businesses without power for several days. However, the largest French labor strike since 1968 is still on 3 weeks ago, less than 10% of public transport for the entire country was working; 75% of the Paris Metro was shut down this past weekend. The strike interfaces with other services & the private sector, & has had a very negative impact on the post. I live alone at 3,000 ft. Altitude in one of the most isolated places in Western Europe, 2 hours by car to any city. Rural postal distribution is by truck work strikes or severe weather have major effects and internet or computer problems take a week to correct. Negotiations between labor unions & the government are taking place, but all of Elly’s listings physically located in France will have a 10 working-day delay instead of the usual 5, because no one can be sure of how long the massive dispute (over retirement age & benefits) will take to resolve. On New Years Day, the strike spread to Radio France & the Paris Opera: a strike increase has been called for, with a near-total shutdown of public transport, & blockages of all fuel refineries & depots; such delays are completely out of our control. The wealth and depth of range in both formal & rustic French lighting, Middle Ages to early 20. Century, exceeds that of any other country. The best overall work to date is still Gabriel Henriot’s 480-page, 1933 masterwork on French lighting, ENCYCLOPEDIE DU LUMINAIRE Formes et Decors Apparentes (rare, out of print, & never translated). Henriot illustrates a number of French, German and Italian wall sconces of this type they can be as early as the 16. Century, but continued until the early 18. Both size and the level of decoration vary considerably – some have very stark round iron shafts, with no extra decoration – and they were made with both pricket and socket candle holders. This is French I know where it came from and to find one with its original mounting bracket is pretty much unheard of. The end of the iron bracket is slightly twisted, for more solid embedding in masonry my house dates from the early 17. Century, and Ive trained in the use of lime mortar for restoring my walls, so Im quite familiar with the subject. This is missing foliate elements, but just how many is hard to be sure of there are indicators of more extensive decoration at 4 different points – please take a close look at the photos, or donwload them. However, this stands very finely on its own, and the missing elements are not at all obvious, unless you really go looking for them. The rolled sheet iron candle cup is primitively lapped & cleated through the drip pan in the same manner as the earliest hogscraper candlesticks; the entire sconce would benefit from a washing down with diluted linseed oil. Circa means exactly that about there is no technical or design reason why this superb piece of lighting couldnt be earlier. Condition is as-seen and described, but generally excellent the tip of one leaf is missing; the sconce has not been excessively cleaned, and the presence of the original mounting piece is a great rarity. If you have a serious interest in antique Continental cast or wrought iron, the French national museum. Musée Le Secq des Tournelles. In Rouen is an absolute necessity to visit we did, several years ago, and I plan to return soon, partly to work with the curators, as to XRF studies & the dating of early French wrought iron lamps and lamp trammels.

Each candle holder is signed’Chiparus. About Demetre Chiparus: Demétre H. Chiparus was born in Romania, the son of Haralamb and Saveta. In 1909 he went to Italy, where he attended the classes of Italian sculptor Raffaello Romanelli. In 1912 he traveled to Paris to attend the Ecole des Beaux Arts to pursue his art at the classes of Antonin Mercie and Jean Boucher. Demétre Chiparus died in 1947 and was buried in Bagneux Cemetery, just south of Paris. The first sculptures of Chiparus were created in the realistic style and were exhibited at the Salon of 1914. He employed the combination of bronze and ivory, called chryselephantine, to great effect. Most of his renowned works were made between 1914 and 1933. The first series of sculptures manufactured by Chiparus were the series of the children. The mature style of Chiparus took shape beginning in the 1920s. His sculptures are remarkable for their bright and outstanding decorative effect. Dancers of the Russian Ballet, French theatre, and early motion pictures were among his more notable subjects and were typified by a long, slender, stylized appearance. His work was influenced by an interest in Egypt, after Pharoah Tutankhamen’s tomb was excavated. The Art Déco period sculptor Demétre Chiparus created one of the most iconic bronzes in 1928 called “Danseuse au cerceau” or “Ring Dancer” inspired in the famous and prodigious dancer Zoula de Boncza of the Parisian “Folies Bergere”, a first dancer of The Belgrado Royal Opera and a Mime dancer of “l’Opéra-Comique” in Paris. Later in life Zoula de Boncza, descendant of Polish nobility and one of Loie Fuller best students, created a book published in 1961: the dance method “La Danse classique san barre” the book was published with texts from Eugène de Rijac and Illustrations by Alexandre Berlant and Yvonne Breton. He worked primarily with the Edmond Etling and Cie Foundry in Paris administrated by Julien Dreyfus. Les Neveux de J. Lehmann was the second foundry who constantly worked with Chiparus and produced the sculptures of his models. Chiparus rarely exhibited at the Salon. In 1923 he showed his Javelin Thrower and in 1928 exhibited his Ta-Keo dancer. During the period of Nazi persecution and the World War II the foundries discontinued production of work by Chiparus. The economic situation of that time was not favorable to the development of decorative arts and circumstances for many sculptors worsened. At the 1942 Paris Salon, the plaster sculptures Polar Bear and American Bison were exhibited and in 1943 he showed a marble Polar Bear and plaster Pelican. Collector interest in the work of Chiparus appeared in the 1970s and has flourished since the 1990s.
