A rare and sophisticated 1920s original design for a French Art Deco lamp.
The piece is a watercolor/gouache applied on a black card.
The shape of the lamp and the motif are pure Art Deco: streamlined flowers in fruity colors, against a lovely "pate de verre" textured glass. (These antique lamps were all hand blown)
Kept away from daylight for the past 90 years, it has retained all its vibrant colors: orange, purplish pink, bright yellow and a fresh green.
The artwork is perfectly done, definitely by a very experienced professional!
Manufacturing references and model number are hand written in black ink at the bottom. The brass metal fixtures have been rendered by the artist in gold.
A very decorative piece with a lot of elegance, which can fit into many decors, from Art Deco to Paris Apartment, Boudoir to Contemporary, etc.
MEASUREMENTS: Total Length: 14". Total Width: 11". Subject Length: 11". Subject Width: 6".
CONDITION: One small rip (left of the top part), not very visible. The original card which had crumbled down has been replaced. (See pic) The painting comes with the card, but is only loosely placed on it, and could therefore be framed on a totally different background.
In very good condition.
The piece will be shipped "Registered" Airmail (very safe!) from Paris including insurance and signature at delivery.
