Edgar Brandt Cobra Lamp
Classic Art Deco gilt-bronze table lamp by Edgar Brandt circa 1925.
The beautifully detailed cobra is depicted rising up out of its basket, its neck coiled around the alabaster shade, and looking so menacing with its mouth agape and its hood flaring.
Known as “La Tentation”, this design was made in three sizes – as a table lamp, a floor lamp and also in a size between the two.
Signed E. Brandt on the base and in good overall condition.
Many fakes hve been produced over the years but this one is the genuine article – we have a letter from the French auction house from which it came confirming its authenticity.
The alabaster shade is marked with a cross but is not otherwise signed. Height to the top of the shade is 52cm.
Rewired and PAT tested.
