Charles ranc founded his bronze lighting company in 1909 in Paris and installed it at 64 rue de la rue de la folie-mericourt. His eugenic and august brothers, as well as his sister madeleine, joined him in 1928 and the company's name became "ranc friars". In 1930 the activity was transferred to 97 of the street oberkampf.
Ranc productions were particularly well known for the precision of finely chiseled bronzes and the elegance of the models, whether they were lamp feet, applied frames or chandeliers. Each of these large bronze appliques measures 36 cm in height with a projection of 18 cm. Each weighs 0.7 kilos. It should be noted that ranc also marketed a two-armed version. The frames are composed of a hexagonal medallion with a stylized floral decoration (photo 3) and a long central spindle with an alternation of smooth and chiseled areas.
