Jacques Adnet and Baccarat Crystal Ball Pair of Art Deco Table lamps
Rare pair of Jacques Adnet lamps made with Baccarat crystal and a nickel base. The balls can be moved to different positions. These lamps are from the 1940s and are documented in the Adnet book (model 7706).
One of the most elegant and innovative 20th-century French furniture designers, Jacques Adnet created a simple, unadorned signature style that is both trim and vigorous. He began his career in the heyday of the Art Deco era, and in the 1950s, in association with Hermès, created chairs, lamps, desks, and other pieces that employed slender metal frames clad in stitched saddle leather. With such furnishings, Adnet brought a fashion sensibility to design and decor that had not been seen since the 1920s prime of the great Paris couturier-decorator Paul Poiret.
