A FINE BELLE ÉPOQUE GILT & PATINATED BRONZE FIGURAL LAMP
France, circa last quarter of the 19th century
Item # 903ZSB13Q 


An inordinately fine cast bronze table lamp, the piece features three male figures that rise from a cabriole stem of acanthus.  Each figure is unique, so while all are looking slightly leftward they each are captured with subtle variations; for example, the turban-like covering crowning each figure's head is in grape leaves for one, laurel leaves for another.  One clutches the gilded garment firmly in his right hand beneath his breast, while another lets the garment drape from his loose grip.  

Above the figures is an integral harp with swirls of foliage, the finial with an old brass plaque noting "Fisher & Co. Inc." - this is likely of no reference to the origins of the lamp.

The figures are raised over a handsome stylized base with relief motifs of a distinctly Neoclassical inspiration, many borrowed directly from the motifs of the Louis XVI period.  A lion's head is positioned between the footer of each figure over the black-and-yellow breccia stone over a bronze rim.

An exquisite and rare find.

Measurements: 30 7/8" H x 10 1/4" W x 7 3/4" D

Condition Report:
