Extraordinary French Gagneau bronze ormolu mount / Theodore Deck faience lamp in a rare dark green glaze color. It is clearly signed Gagneau on the bronze oil lamp fitting. We have seen several examples of Theodore Deck faience in Persian blue, also referred to as "bleu de Deck", but this is a hard to find example in green. The ceramic has a raised chinoiserie décor of scrolling lotus and stiff leaves at the neck. Gagneau was a maker of fine bronzes and oil lamps founded in Paris in 1839 by brothers Edouard and François GAGNEAU. There is also a metal plaque on the underside inscribed GAGNEAU and its address of 115 Rue Lafayette ci-devant R. d'Enchien. Joseph-Théodore Deck (1823–1891) was a one of France's most distinguished 19th Century ceramists. He established his own faiencerie where he created traditional Chinese inspired pieces such as this. His works are part of the collection of major international museums including the Metropolitan in New York. Last photo shows lamp in a setting so you can get an idea of its proportions. In very good used condition, electrified and working, with ceramic crazing, wear to bronze gilt and minor signs of wear as shown. Shipped professionally packed and fully insured with tracking number.
