The light shows wear marks consistent with age, especially to the inside of the mounting, where the white varnish is partly rubbed off. The functionality of the light could not be verified and can therefore not be guaranteed. The height is circa 70 cm, and the diameter is 45 cm.

Henri Petitot

In 1878, the bronze maker Antonin Petitot opened a workshop in Paris. In 1917, his son Henri took over the company. They soon sold their products not only in Paris but also in whole France, Europe and the United States. Petitot produced high quality bronze fixtures with shades from the finest French glass workshops, including Frères Muller. Along with Hettier & Vincent, Petitot became the largest Art Deco lamp manufacturer in the 1930s. (cko)
