Jacques Adnet and Black Baccarat Crystal Ball Art Deco Table Lamp
Rare Jacques Adnet lamp made with Baccarat black crystal and a nickel base. The ball can be moved to different positions. This lamp is from the 1940s and is documented in the Adnet book (model 7706). This particular lamp is in exceptional condition, metal polishing, rewiring, and polishing of the very rare black Baccarat glass (the first time I’ve seen this color) make this a wonderful investment and addition to your home.
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.
