Louis Majorelle and Daum Nancy Patinated Bronze and Domed Glass Chandelier


This uniquely-shaped French Art Nouveau chandelier, a collaboration by Louis Majorelle and Daum Nancy, features a glass shade—executed by Daum Nancy—has an abstractly floral, undulating design, rendered subtly in flowing autumnal colors of yellow, orange, red, and light green. The fiery asymmetrical domed glass shade, suspended by three sinuous arms from a patinated bronze mounting—designed by Louis Majorelle—is replete with a vegetal motif.
