Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Josef Lorenzl was one of the most famous and prolific sculptors of the Art deco period. He produced figurative pieces in both bronze, spelter and porcelain, where he worked along side Stephan Dakon in the famous Austrian Goldscheider factory. His pieces depicted the style and elegance of the period, where his ladies with their slim elongated, almost boy-like features found fame throughout Europe and the world. His sense of oppulence and sexual liberation, reflected the revolution in society of the roaring nineteen-twenties and thirties!
This period lamp, designed by Lorenzl, is cast in cold-painted gilt-spelter, with varieing hues of coppery-browns and silver high-lights throughout. It depicts a Ballet Russe dancer, striking a dynamic pose on tip toes, holding a classical urn above her head, that becomes the gallery for the lamp and shade. Her dress shows the revolution in moderne-costumes that found fame through the Ballet Russe at the time in Europe, where her slim elongated figure is pure Lorenzl, with almost boy-like features to her sculpting. She stands atop a tiered round pedestal base, to which she is seperatly bolted. All is in lovely original condition, with the cold-painted finish, showing the subtle hues throughout. The opaque shade diffuses the light beautifully, and sits snuggly into the elaborate fluted-urn gallery and is free from any chips etc. All is free from any breaks, with general ware, consistent with age, remarkable for the lamps age as spelter is such a fragile metal.
