Pierre Chareau (1883-1950)
Lamp «LP 180» or «Masque» with the structure in patinated wrought iron, endowed with two elements in alabaster, becoming the two reflectors.This lamp also called «Masque» is one of the most advanced pieces by Pierre Chareau. If this piece became iconic, the model was produced in a very small serie following a great savoir-faire. Particularly sought after by Chareau lovers, this model was part of several important Art Deco colelctions : as the Château Gourdon, the Chwast’s collection or, of course the Jean & Annnie Dalsace’s collection who owned the Maison de Verre.
