A unique Jean Touret iron chandelier with three white lampshade foil diffusers inside the spiraling arms. The lamp hangs from an iron chain and canopy. This piece was part of a large estate of Marolles items, bought directly from the sons of the owners. The Atelier Marolles was commissioned to furnish the house, from a dinner table and sideboard to smaller items like this one. The items were made in the 1950s, under the direction of and designed by Jean Touret. The late Jean Touret began a career as a painter and then turned towards woodcarving. All his life he continued his aesthetic research by experimenting unconventional use of a variety of materials: Wood, paper, copper, zinc, bronze, plexiglass, ceramics and concrete. We have several other pieces by Touret available.
