His brothers Eugenius and Augustus, as well as his sister madeleine, joined him in 1928 and the society became \In 1930 the activity was transferred to 97 rue oberkampf. The ranc productions were particularly renowned for the precision of the finely chiselled bronzes and the elegance of the models, whether they were lamp stands, sconces or chandelier frames.

We are less familiar with the more modernist production of Charles Ranc and this lamp is a perfect illustration of this. Here the plant or animal decorations have completely disappeared in favor of simple geometric shapes that respond to each other on metal and glass in perfect harmony.
