This elegant French table lamp is made from a late 19th century bronze. The cherub wears a drape over his lap and has an open book in one hand. He sits on a rocky ledge with sparse foliation (separately cast piece). All this is mounted to an oval wooden base. It comes with a beautiful pale silk shade, and is fully wired and ready to use. The details and proportion of the statue are excellent, and the quality of the gilding of the cherub is bright and consistent throughout. The rocky base portion of the statue has been re-gilded in gold leaf.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition with minor wear and some abrasions to bottom of wooden base.
H = 26 1/4, shade dimensions = 18 1/4 x 13 1/8
