This stunningly beautiful, large Art Nouveau torchere lamp (circa Turn of the Century), has a gorgeous lady holding a goblet, and has a goblet shaped jeweled shade. The lamp is signed L&F Moreau (studio). Louis Moreau and Hippolyte Francois Moreau were the sons of Auguste Moreau who did Victorian statue lamps, figurines, clocks etc.. His sons Louis (1855-1919) and Francias (1832-1927) took over the studio at the end of the Victorian era and, keeping up with the style of the day, made Art Nouveau figurines (as well as other metalwork) in both bronze and spelter. This figurine is spelter with an antique gold polychrome finish. The Victorious lady has really nice casting and is signed along the bottom. It also has a round disk at the back which I assumed was a French Import marking (looks the same) but with my trusty magnifying glass reads Collection Franciase, Made in USA. I don't know this rare marking and perhaps the Moreau brothers went into business with an American company? Anyway, she's a real work of art! The lamp stands 33 1/2" tall, the shade is about 8" tall and 7" across the top and the marble base is 6" across. Any overcharge of shipping to your area will be refunded. Thanks for looking!
