Rare Art Deco Lamp Base by Frederic Weinberg
After years of relative obscurity, Frederic Weinberg's creations are becoming increasingly popular today, in part because his stylized figural sculptures are icons of 1950s design. Based in Philadelphia, Weinberg's inventiveness and energy produced a vast range of decorative objects and lighting fixtures in plaster, bent wire, brass and other materials from the 1940s through the 1960s. This plaster female head, surmounted on a fluted classical column, is an early example of his work in the Art Deco manner, probably from the 1940s. This piece maintains its original label. (The sculpture itself is 12.5 inches high; height to top of finial is 25.5 inches.)
