A very pretty, working art nouveau bronze patina table lamp featuring a young lady - nymph holding the bulb like a torch. She sits on black marble with white veins. The lamp is signed Germany and Becs I believe. It comes fitted with a toggle on/off switch. You'd use a chandelier bulb for this lamp and the fitter is 2 1/4 inches to find a shade, or, you could use a cloth shade with tension fitting.
CONDITION: There is a little wear to the bronze patina but she's really quite lovely and you have to critically inspect her to see that. She also has a small pin sized hole in her head. Its been there since the beginning though I'm not sure why. Looks to have been rewired at some time but I always suggest having electricals checked.
SIZE: She stands 13 inches and with the bulb the lamp stands 17 inches

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.
