Wonderful transaction! I bought the most adorable vintage clock from a great vendor. Élise was wonderful to deal with, she replied to my messages promptly and was very helpful. I would buy from her again without hesitation. Thank you Élise!

About

Classic Deco, Classic Style, Classy Homes

I do practice what I preach in that I believe in furnishing my house with French Antiques - mostly from the Art Deco and Mid Century eras. My items are both fashionable and practical. Everything I buy and sell has a beauty - and a purpose. I rarely buy trendy items that people can't use. I'm all about the practicality - and the beauty. I bought, renovated, refurbished and sold homes all over Europe. Nowadays I still am active with redesigning homes via my antiques that I find here in France - and sometimes farther afield. I've always loved French Art Glass - especially lighting. My original love of the greats - Daum, Muller Freres, Lalique, Sabino and Degue are all still present in my own place, and when I can find them for reasonable prices, I love to pass them on to my customers.

But you'll also discover the mischievous side of me - evident in my love for French Mid Century items - lots of loud colors, wacky designs, but all very original and still practical.

Please contact me for any special orders, needs, or a wish list - I will try and help you find what you're looking for.

Now stop reading this, and please go visit my shop here at Etsy.

Welcome to the Decofanatique site on etsy. Like most of you out there with an intense admiration for the enduring style of all that is Art Deco, I share your love!

I have been collecting Art Deco (almost exclusively French) for the past 20 years. My knowledge has been gained by living in the place where the lamps and glass were produced - and talking to everyone: antique dealers, gallery owners, market stall sellers and high-end boutiques, and learning about their products. This knowledge and talent for finding you a bargain did not appear overnight, but was built over 20 years of searching, finding, and bargaining hard to bring you the best of what is available on the French market.

While I tend to buy mostly ceiling lights (I consider them the most beautiful and practical expression of Art Deco), I also buy lampshades (we all need replacement parts now and then), table and wall lights, vases, bowls, and perfume/vanity sets. But every now and then I will bring you a rare and wonderful surprise like a genuine 1930s bull fight poster, Christofle crystal from the period, or a sterling silver salt and pepper set still in its original packaging from a long-gone Parisian shop.

I sell my lamps with the original wiring. However, due to its age, the existing seventy or eighty years' old wiring has to be replaced (which is part of the charm of buying a real part of history but is better replaced once it has been admired). I leave this to you, as each country has different wiring requirements and hardware. Please check your local regulations.

Finally, and quite importantly, you are buying unique objects which are ART in its true meaning of the word. As such, they have also become an excellent investment. Enjoy the site!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
You can now pay through both Etsy Direct Checkout and Paypal - which also accepts all major credit cards. Payment is due within 3 days of purchase, or the item will be relisted. We now accept Etsy Giftcards as well!

I am now going to offer a layaway policy for items over $50, giving you between 30-60 days to pay, depending on our negotiations. Between 2-3 payments will be required within that time period, with at least 1/3 down of the total price. Sorry, but there will be no refunds if you can not make your payments, so please consider this option seriously as there will be no refunds, and no layaway is available on Sale items. Items on layaway will be put on RESERVE until you have finished paying for the item. The total amount of the item (item price + shipping) will be the total price of the layaway item. Negotiated payments will be invoiced and paid by Paypal. The payment must be NET. Please contact me if you would like to explore this option.
Shipping
I strive to ship within 3-5 business days after I receive payment.

For orders under 2 kg, I use a tracled signed-for service with French Priority Airmail. Packages over 2 kg, automatically must be shipped by Colissimo which is a Tracked and Signed-For service. In either case, your shipment will be well protected and packed.

I do not charge my customers anything for packing materials or the time it takes to pack your items, thus you can be assured that I do not "make anything" on shipping costs!

I will list the shipping method with the accompanying price on each of my items. However, if you need the item quicker, insured, etc. please contact us first before you complete the payment for the order, so we can give you the quote for the additional cost.

Your order will require signature confirmation upon delivery. Buyers may elect to have their order shipped to an alternate address (ex. work) to expedite the signature confirmation process- please add this address to your Etsy and/or PayPal account prior to purchase. If the buyer is not at home when delivery is attempted, orders with signature confirmation may need to be picked up at your local Post Office. Packages not picked up in a timely fashion will be returned by the postal service.

In the case of packages returned for non-delivery, merchandise cost only will be refunded once the package arrives back at my studio in its original condition. Original shipping fees will not be refunded. If the customer prefers, the item(s) may be reshipped and the customer is responsible for the second shipping fee. This fee will be invoiced via PayPal and the package will reship once payment is received.

In the rare case of damage during shipment, please save all parts of your item plus all packaging. We will need it to file an insurance claim. Please contact me right away with photos of damaged items and their packaging. If packaging is discarded, this voids shipping insurance and I will be unable to issue a refund or replacement.

Please note that any taxes or customs duties are the buyers responsibility.
Refunds and Exchanges
Return shipment is paid by the customer, and must also have Tracking. Returns are accepted for only 2 weeks after purchase and only in the case when the goods received were unintentionally misrepresented by the seller. Return payment is by Paypal only, and only once the item is received in identical condition to that it was sent in.
Additional policies and FAQs
We welcome offers on all of our items!

As you visit this site it may trigger a wish for an item that has been sold or is not currently in my inventory. Or maybe you are not able to find what you want on my site but so far you have not found it anywhere else either.

One Service that I have frequently provided for my clients has been bespoke sourcing of identical or matching items:

* maybe you are looking for a missing glass lampshade
* perhaps you own a shop and need genuine French antiques, but do not have the budget for regular stock-building trips to France, or
* you run an art fund and you need a local sourcer?

Please let me know your query, send a description and some photos if you can, and I will try to find what you are looking for. I visit the markets on a weekly basis, and together with my "on the ground" contacts here in France, we are bound to find what you are looking for.

Finally, I am also able to organize for you or your party, an antique-finding expedition in the South of France in the Languedoc region where the items are plentiful and very reasonably priced! You just need someone to help you find those hard to find items you are searching for and help you haggle!

Please don't forget to leave feedback information for me, and thank you so much for visiting my store!
