Elegant Moorish Hollywood Regency era 1950s gilt wrought iron wall mount lantern sconce by Palladio the high end Italian lighting atelier. The look is incredibly chic in hallway, a foyer, in a portal hall with a need for a visual statement at a hall turn, or in a retail or restaurant setting as a statement behind a desk or hotel lobby check in station. It looked like it was never unpacked or used, though I cannot be sure. It can be hung without the wall mounted arm, but it shows a way it can be used in a hallway or on porch wall, for instance. It would be a great hall/ foyer light too.

Through the years I found that sourcing items for specific events, photo shoots, and interior design projects was a valuable skill in a city that produces images, events, and interiors that influence how style is seen throughout the world.
I started my career in New York City in the late 1980s dressing display windows at Henri Bendel & the elegant Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in the glory days of real story-telling windows. It was there that I learned the art of styling designer clothing & creating an aspirational & romantic mood with merchandise that helps build a relationship with the clothes we wear, and the emotion that people have with properly presented merchandise. I had access to the finest luxury designer clothing like Claude Montana, Pauline Trigere, Coco, Mr Beene and others, and learned about expert seam construction, the feel of good fabrics, the details that matter, and the high tech fabrics that are constantly innovating the marketplace. It was also a time (the 80s) when the shift in the social food chain began to change, a time when the Ladies Who Lunch began to be replaced by a new moneyed group who changed the way retail was conducted, and I always longed for the days when shopping was an event, a treat, and madame was served champagne in dressing rooms and the clothes were not thrown on rounder racks in discount departments.
My mother also wore lots of Bonnie Cashin in the 1960s and 1970s so I was aware of the modern minimalists, and sought them out for her when I found them. Since Im shopping constantly, and love fancy estate sales and sample sales, I scour them regularly and with great skill; the result is an online shop that I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, home accessories, & mid century odds and ends from high end homes in the New York City area. I love helping source stuff, and just KNOW that I have tons more stuff than is listed here, so if you are in film or television production just ask for specifics and I will probably have something for you, or be able to understand what you are looking for without wasting your time. I have been in the biz and know how it works. Follow me on InstaG: Chipper1963/ IG Chip Cordelli Check out my other listings.
