French Art Deco Lamp, signed by L. Bruns, c. 1920
Beautiful signed, French Art Deco accent lamp / statue by known and highly collected artist of the French Art Deco period, L. Bruns. Woman standing, with a 1920's bob hairstyle, draped elegantly in a short dress with exquisite gilded detailing. She is elegantly standing on the toes of her right foot stretching her right arm straight overhead. She gazes overhead and in her raised right hand she holds a sphere-shaped globe, symbolic of the earth and of universal harmony. The square base is in two tiers with a bottom tier in grey/black/white marble and the upper tier in black granite/marble.
She is elegant and truly spectacular. This functional work of art makes for an excellent accent lamp or night light. The size makes it easy to place on a nightstand, vanity, side table or console table.
Signed on back right corner of the base, in the marble, 'Bruns'. (please see photo). The original paint and patina are intact and she holds the original bulb/globe.
Dimensions: 18 inches high, 4 3/4 inches square at base, 6 inches deep. Weight: 5lbs, 12 oz.
Condition: In excellent original condition with patina intact. Very minor, age a signs of wear.
Re-wired with a new socket and black cloth cord (in line switch) for the USA (November 2011).
