Boris Lacroix a rare Pair of French 1930s Art Deco Wall Sconces - image 1 of 14

Jean Boris Lacroix

A beautiful pair of French art deco wall sconces made around 1935 in nickel plated solid brass or bronze and clear frosted moulded-pressed glass. They were designed by Boris Lacroix.
Boris Lacroix (1902-1984) was the illegitimate son of the eccentric playboy grand duke Boris Vladimirovitch, the brother of the Russian tsar Alexander the 3rd, and Jeanne Aumont-Lacroix. Boris Lacroix was an architect and designer. At the age of 18 he began as draftsman in the manufactory of Paul Dumas. In 1924 he started to work for the fashion designer Madeleine Vionnet. Where he later became the artistic director. He left la maison Vionnet in 1937. Around 1926 onwards he designed lamps as well. They were first presented to the public at the 1927 Salon des artistes décorateurs. He signed his pieces with the monogram LA+. In the mid 30s he made a serial of chandeliers and sconces depicting the theme of birds seashells seahorses and mermaids. The chandeliers were made in high volumes and are frequently on the market. Wall sconces of Boris Lacroix are a rare find. The mountings of these sconces lamps and chandeliers were produced for Lacroix by H. Petitot in plated solid brass or bronze. And the LA+ signed shades were made by Etablissement Jean Gauthier (Ezan).

The sconces are in excellent condition. I re-nickeled the mounts. And rewired them with American candelabra base sockets. Both shades are signed LA+ in relief on the inside of the cup. The glass wings of the birds are always unsigned.
The sconces are 24,8 cm (9,76") high, 21,5 cm (8,46") long and project 39 cm (15,35 inches) from the wall. The shades have a diameter of 20,6 cm (8,1").
