This is a beautiful and very useful period reference portfolio of the work of important Art Deco French wrought iron designers. Included are works by Raymond Subes, Gilbert Poillerat, Nics Freres, Richard Desvallieres, Scnenck et Fils and, of course, Edgar Brandt. Period documentation of this kind is now very difficult to find, and these large-format portfolios are beautiful. This was complied by Henri Clouzot, and published as part of a series on Art Deco decoration – EDITIONS D’ART by Charles Moreau.
Decorative cardboard wrapper states 3rd series, but the actual plates inside are the 4th Series. Very beautifully designed frontespiece,plates complete and in excellent condition.
