Midcentury Woman's Head Luminaire, Attributed to Accolay Pottery

About

This original lamp, made in the shape of a hot-air balloon and overhung by a woman's head, is attributed to Accolay's productions, which were made from the 1940s until the end of the 20th century. Indeed, the originality of this piece, the gradation of colors achieved as well as the speckled effect are characteristics of Accolay Pottery. This Luminaire is a real trompe-l'oeil curiosity. All the elements are present: the balloon, the nacelle, both connected by wires, and the light from the lamp, replacing the heated air that allows the balloon to fly. In addition, the ceramic piece is composed of a hook, allowing to hang this lamp on the ceiling, and representing the head of a woman. The lamp can also be placed on the floor.
