Degué again...

In 1928 Edouard Cazaux, (1889 - 1974), an artist, sculptor and ceramic designer joined forces with David Gueron, founder of Christalleries de Compiegne. The company was called "Verrerie d' art Degue". They opened a retail outlet in 1930 in Paris on Rue Druout which existed until 1939. The company participated in the decoration of the steamship Normandy, launched in 1935. Their glass was signed "Degué"

This French art deco wall sconce is a lovely combination of hand wrought iron in a mix of hand struck lines and beaten swirls and frosted glass by Degue in a geometric roses pattern. The sconce measures 12” x 7 ½” and can be hung horizontally or vertically.
