Extraordinarily rare art deco Frankart era and style chrome seated nude woman accent table lamp with mirror. Truly gorgeous and very unusual the naked lady sits reclined in front of a etched vanity mirror that reflects her form beautifully. The amber colored etch glass is a beautiful touch. A remarkable unsigned quality lamp that comes apart as seen in the photos.
CONDITION: Excellent vintage / antique condition without damage or repairs. Normal signs of age and some minor pitting as seen on the top which I believe can be covered with silver plate/cleaner. I did not want to 'hide' it as that wouldn't be honest. Please use zoom feature to inspect lamp and ask questions!
SIZE APPROX. The lamp stands 11 1/2 inches tall to top of the mirror
LIGHTING SAFETY NOTE: Many old lamps will have their original wiring and sockets, and likely connected to a knob and tube system. These pieces should NOT be connected to an electrical supply without a qualified inspection of all parts. Rewiring is the usual and highly recommended path. We take no responsibility for lighting that is not inspected or properly used.
BUYER RESPONSIBILITIES: While I do my best to describe any potential flaws with equal attention to its attributes, please use the zoom feature to examine the item to make a determination if this meets your standards for vintage and antique items being offered. Email should you have any questions or require more information.
PLEASE NOTE: I do my best to pack glass as safely as possible and ship by courier. However, once and item leaves my hands it is out of my control. I can not guarantee safety and DO NOT accept returns or give refunds on broken glass / lamps etc.
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
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, 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.
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.
