French Antique Egyptian Figural Bronze Sculpture Lamp Light with Tole Shade



Egyptian figural bronze sculpture mounted as a lamp With a green tole painted shade; French, circa 1900 Item # 007JOC30L An incredibly fine Egyptian female figural bronze sculpture mounted as a lamp, it is almost certainly entirely original and was cast to be a lamp - all elements perfectly match in period and patination, suggesting they were always designed to work together. The simple shade is "tôle peinte", a green and gold painted sheet metal that is subtle and austere, allowing the eye to focus on the beauty of the sculpture. Note the perfect casting quality of the sculpture - the complex garment is beautifully textured with crisp chiseling to the features of her hair, fingernails, eyelids and toes. The patina is translucent and absolutely glows - all the more under the lighted bulbs above. Her toes project over an integral bronze base, this stepped over what appears to be a painted iron plinth and ultimately resting on an original rouge marble base that finishes everything beautifully but also provides enough weight to make the presentation stable. Measurements: 25 1/4" H (total); 14 1/2" H (bronze figure); 14 3/4" diameter to tole shade; base 5" W x 4 3/8" D Condition report: Wiring is untested - appears to be intact and in good shape, but we always recommend wiring is inspected by a professional before using in the home. Minor chips/wear to green paint on the shade. Tiny chips to marble base. Very minor handling wear to patina of figural (some lightness to the extreme of the arms).
