Art Deco uplighter from Maison Genet et Michon in acid washed bronze. 35cm x 30cm (137 x 12 inches).

Created circa 1930, the beautifully patinated gold finish has been achieved by applying acid over a resist. A very sophisticated and unusual technique that can be seen on several pieces from the same house. Overall in superb original condition, with only a couple of small areas of touch up to the white painted interior, see images. Newly rewired to modern UK standards with a braided cotton cable and new inline switch.

Philippe Genêt and Lucien Michon set up a design firm in 1911, making light fixtures from 1919. At the time this piece was produced the firm had a prestigious reputation and were working for The Elysee Palace, embassies, and ministries. They continued their activities after the war, and the firm closed in the 1960's.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
