PAIR OF NEO-GRECO BRONZE AMPHORA LAMPS OVER ROUGE MARBLE
Cast with classical scenes in high-relief; circa 1900
Item # 903JGP25P 


A handsome pair of lamps likely designed after the Olympian deities of the Greek pantheon, this finely cast pair of patinated bronze lamps are in the form of an amphora vases with a turned brass cap through which the electrical element projects. 

The quality of the casting is notable with a crispness throughout that leaves the surface rich and complex throughout, a mixture of the bas-relief figurals and deep inset repeating motifs under relief castings of vines and foliage flanked by shaped handles terminating in swan heads. 

They retain an original patina, this a mix of a rich brown ground with hints of black in recesses and a bringing complexity to the figures with a red-bole sanguine-like patination.  This is particularly effective against the rouge marble of the base; both lamps are raised over gilt bronze toupie feet.

Measurements: 32 1/4" H x 8 7/8" W x 6 1/2" D

Condition Report:
Brass ring capping the top of either lamp with stress cracks; light wear to relief of patina, though this may be somewhat intentional; chips and roughness to rouge marble.
