French art deco night lamp perfume burner by ROBJ Paris - 1920s France - image 1 of 10

ROBJ

A beautiful 1925-30 brûle parfum (incense burner) by Robj, the Paris France based company of Jean Born. A forged iron base in a nice deep-brown patina holds a rare shade in colored hand-blown glass. Both shade and base are signed Robj Paris.

The lamp is 14,5 cm high (5,67") and the ball shaped shade has a diameter of 12,5 cm. It is in very good condition. Some small chips on the rim of the shade. The perfume burner is beautiful as small lamp or night lamp as well. It is wired with an American candelabra base socket and 2-prong plug.

ROBJ is an anagram for Jean Born, the founder of the company in 1908. After the first world war Jean Born together with his business partner Lucien Willemetz had a shop at 3 cité d’Hauteville in Paris selling porcelain figurines and other objects advertised as the ‘Bibelots de Robj’ - robj trinkets. Late 20s Robj opened a second store at 32 rue de Paradis which later moved to number 51 in the same street. The company commissioned many young designers to create items for its shop. Jean Born died in a car crash in 1922 after which Willemetz continued the company on his own. In the 20s Robj was very popular and a commercial success. The company closed in 1931. Nowadays especially Robj incense burners and table lamps are sought after collectibles.
