that can be specified in one of our many finishes.

Ruhlmann Swallow's Nest  
Ruhlmann Swallow's Nest

This sumptuous modern wall sconce was originally designed in 1925 by Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann for
the grand apartment on the Champs Elysees of Lord Rothermere. The sconces were located in the master bathroom sheathed in an arabescato marble. This Salle De Bains is furnished with bronze and etched glass doors, 3-way bronze mirrors, oval marble vanities and solid marble entryway columns.

The Ruhlmann Swallows Nest sconce is a semi-round alabaster cup held by a plate of brass and
lateral round clip. It measures 6 3/4”w x 5” h x
7 1/2” projection and holds one 40w incandescent bulb in a candelabra base.

Cosmopolitan [Alabaster Sculpted Bowl  
[Alabaster Sculpted Dish]

The Cosmopolitan hanging light was inspired by a chandelier designed circa 1920 by legendary French furniture/lighting designer and interior decorator, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann (Paris 1879-1933) It was described as a ‘serrated crown’ and was originally made of bronze doré and alabaster hanging from
silk cords.

While we still offer our Cosmopolitan light with
a flat plate of alabaster, lit with L.E.D technology
(see UA0631-24 HL) we are now also making it
with our alabaster sculpted dish. This fixture is
lit with 3x 60w candelabra base incandescent bulbs suspended from a rod into the center of the dish.

24 1/4”dia. with a minimum drop of 24”.

Salon Light

This exquisite ceiling light is a testament to the
genius of the designer, Edgar Brandt. Brandt was
a consummate artist-blacksmith aligning art with industrial methods. He became a leading force during a period of great achievement in French decorative arts. He is considered the greatest exponent of Art Deco metal work.

A ceiling light he designed in 1925 was the
inspiration for our alabaster and cast brass
Salon Light. We offer it as a flushmount
as well as a hanging light in eleven finishes.
