Antique art nouveau c. 1910 - 1915 Czech fruit basket lamp set on a bronze basket with crystal base. This unique design is very elegant with multi color and several varities of Czech glass fruit woven into the lid which sit's atop the crystal and bronze base. The variety of fruit include berries, green grapes, cherries, small amber pears, clear glass apple and blue flower. The fruit that is woven onto the metal cage comes off the base where one can replace the low watt bulb. Truly a lovely accent piece and perfect to bring attention to a specific area. The mood lighting is quite dramatic.
CONDITION: The lamp is in overall excellent condition and has been rewired for safety. The bronze and crytal base, including the crystal handle are in find shape. The fruit could use some rewiring and they are not all pefect.
SIZE: The lamp stands 11 inches tall x approximately 7 inches across.
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.
