Marc du Plantier Important Pair of Lyre Form Wall Sconces

$33,000per set


Pair of gilt iron appliques in the form of a lyre created by Marc du Plantier for a private apartment in Madrid, 1940s. Two pair were created for this apartment, described as neoclassical Avant Garde modernist. We are fortunate to have this pair which are documented by Yves Badetz in "Marc du Plantier", e´d. Norma, Paris, 2010. Presented in entirely original condition with no restorations whatsoever. Extraordinary construction, hand forged and gilt. Even the E14 candelabra bulb sockets are hand made with wood and brass. The candle sleeves are white satin opaline glass cylinders or tubes which too were hand blown which is evident from their greater thickness on one end. Each sconce mounts to the wall by a single discrete hook on the back of the horizontal cross bar. Socially well connected, Marc du Plantier worked for the aristocracy, banking and industrial elite of the day (he completed full interiors for Henry de Rothschild, Juan March and Ali Khan, to name a few) as well as set design for the Come´die franc¸aise, and furniture for both the Elyse´e Palace and the new French Embassy in Ottawa, Canada.
