SCHNEIDER small FRENCH 1930 ART DECO LAMP. Wrought iron. 1925 France

It holds a beautiful coloured shade in mottled glass produced by Charles Schneider. It has the usual Schneider signature used around 1926-29. It is a very small shade, a rare model by the famous Schneider manufactory. The lamp or night lamp is 12,8 cm high (5 inches).

The shade has a diameter of 9,9 cm (3,9) and the forged iron base is about 14 cm in diameter. The lamp is in excellent condition. Wired with new cloth covered twisted cord. It is equiped with a stylish brass and porcelain E14 socket so you will have no difficulties finding suitable bulbs for it. Originaly old French lamps had B22 bayonet sockets. But they are very unpractical. Good quality modern light bulbs are hardly available. And for professional restorers 90 years old sockets are forbidden to use. So I wire lamps as these with E14 sockets for which bulbs are widely available.

For the States or Japan I will rewire the lamp with an American candelabra base socket and US 2-prong plug. Check out over 300 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.
