Product Description

A very attractive early 1930s German large Art Deco metal figure lamp in very nice condition.

The lamp is in the shape of a young sportswoman, standing gracefully and balancing a large heavily frosted glass globe. The base is made of polished grey serpentine. The body appears to be made of a metal zinc alloy, but seems too fine to be spelter. It has been finished by all over gilding on a silver nickel surface. Therefore the effect is golden, but with a dark patina of age. It certainly looks better quality than the similar painted spelter examples.

The design was made popular by a series of reasons. Firstly is the elegant Art Deco woman. Then there is the popularity of Callisthenics, and finally the German desire to portray their women embracing the healthy ideals of the Third Reich.

The lamp has its original electric cable. We are selling the lamp as a collectable. To use, we recommend that you have it tested by an approved electrician, first.
