Outstanding period French art deco c. 1930 figural harlequin fine porcelain lamp features two Harlequin lovers or Pierrot and Pierrette. The imagery is very much associated with art deco, the details and color on this piece are exceptional with the lady bare breasted. The white porcelain has been hand gilded and painted and looks just great when lighted, with a soft romantic glow. There are blue accents as well with a pale grey base. There is no mark on this lamp that I've been able to find, but I am quite convinced that it is a Limoges or possibly Lladro porcelain. Superb decorative light that will be the focus of much conversation.
CONDITION: Great condition with No cracks or chips.
SIZE: It is 14 inches wide and about 11 inches high, and glows softly when illuminated. It is a perfect Lamp for lovers of Art Deco!

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
