For many decades, Porcelier made some of the finest lighting fixtures and house wares. There’s a book on their work.
Porcelier became famous for the quality of their product, and its aesthetic. Most of what the company produced featured gorgeous floral designs. However, just before they closed in 1954, the company boldly broadened their line.
These “last generation” lighting fixtures are incredibly rare, and, rarer still, to find with their respective components still intact.
In the image above is one of these rare last generation fixtures. I could see in the image that the gold on the green stem was worn, but I had the same stem in storage…in mint condition. But I did not have the shade. This original shade. This perfect shade. So, when I found the fixture above, my heart stopped. THIS is what I had been seeking for about a decade. THERE was the LOST SHADE!
There are 7.4 billion people on this planet. And it is quite likely that I am the only person who really gets just how incredible and rare and special this chandelier is. Which means that it will take forever to sell. Forever! But, in the long meantime, I am pleased to call it mine.
