Unique French pendant lamp from the 1930s. In terms of shape / style it is close to Art Deco.
A blue white glass centre bowl and 3 lampshades on the sides.
The lamp is signed (and that does not happen very often): Rethondes.
Pâte de verre is the processing of finely crushed glass and glass granules mixed with powders. This is again mixed with a binder / paste (for example gum arabic) to form a glass paste.
This mixture is layered with a spatula or the like. applied in a mold. The mold is often made of heat-resistant plaster and can only be used once. The mold and its contents are fired in a glass oven, after which the mold is removed after the cooling process. Each lampshade is therefore unique.
Note: this lamp has bayonet fittings.
This rare lamp is a true beauty !
