Gustave Serrurier-Bovy (1858 - 1910)

Circa 1905

Exceptional wall lamp called "Pendulum Moulin" with cubic box with geometric cutout in oak underlined by twin side bars in polished brass and studded plates in polished brass as well.

Perfect condition, completely professionally revised, has its original key.
It features a cut-off dial with golden Arabic numerals on a blue American glass background.

An architect by training, Serrurier Bovy brought creative impetus to the international art nouveau movement.

In 1903 he founded with a Parisian architect, René Dulong the Company "Serrurier et Cie" from 1903 to 1907 the house will produce its finest achievements. The pendulum created during this period presents logical forms of geometric construction. In this little masterpiece, we find symbolic allusions to its creator.
