Rare Art Deco Chrome & Spelter, 'scarf Dancer' Lamp, By Lorenzl, C.1935 For Sale

Rare Art Deco Chrome & Spelter, 'scarf Dancer' Lamp, By Lorenzl, C.1935

A RareAustrianChrome & Spelter 'Scarf Dancer' Torchiere Lamp,by Josef Lorenzl, with originalfrosted-glass flame shade,circa 1935.


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 varieing chrome high-lights to the dancers hair and scarf. It depictsa 1920's 'Erotic Scarf Dancer',striking a dynamicpose, on one tip-toed foot. Herstylised shapeand sense of movement, is reminicent of the many car-mascots of the era. Shestandsatop a circular tiered chrome base, holding the chrome lamp stand & bakelite on/off switch, for ease of use. All this is raised on the original black bakelite pedestal base, which is echoed in both colour and design in the shade-gallery above, which holds the flame shade. All is in lovely originalcondition, free from any loss andthe chrome is free from anycorrosion, remarkable for the lamps age.

The lamp retainins early wiring, with a push button on/off switch.It takes astandard bayonet bulbwhich works fine. But as with all old electrical items, it should be tested and checked by a qualified electrician before prolonged use.

This stylish period lamp is animpressive600 mm's tall, by 140mm's in circumference, andquite weighty for it's size. The original glass shade sitssecurelyin the screw-bolted gallery.

All my pieces are very well wrapped & packed individually in strong boxes to secure safety in transit, and are sent recorded parcel post. International buyers are more than welcome to ask for a shipping quote from Ireland to their delivery destination. Thank you for taking the time to view my sale!
