Dramatic, beautifully finished and finely detailed, this very rare pair of bronze lamp bases depict skyscraper buildings, each featuring multiple setbacks in the Classic Art Deco manner, all rising above a multi-staged plinth with cascades of steps descending below. Perhaps sculpted and cast to commemorate a structure that was proposed in the 1930s, this pair survives as a unique testament to the soaring ambition and fine craftsmanship of another era. Possibly Canadian in origin. (Height dimension includes bronze finial).
