This is an absolutely beautiful example of the Art Nouveau Era. The lamp is unique in design, with a basket weave motif on the base. At the front of the basket is a figural frog in a leaping position with the hind legs up which creates a sense of motion in the design of the piece. Around the basket are large flowing leaves. Climbing up the stem of the lamp are more leaves with a bud at the very top. Even the bottom side of the basket is a weaved design,please refer to photos. The shade has an ornate floral and leaf design incised into the metal with an open filigree medallion in the center of the shade with an intricate lion head motif. The shade is set on both sides with an original green glass insert with a raised basket weave design. The shade is made to swivel from side to side. The original socket is in place behind the shade. The lamp is either bronze or brass with a fantastic original bronze patina. It measures 14 inches at the tallest point and approximately 5 1/2 inches deep. Although I have titled this lamp as a desk lamp, it could be used anywhere in your home. If you love the Art Nouveau Era and all the bygone beauty that period of time represented, then this lamp is definitely for you!
