French Fer Forge Table Lamp with Lagny Shade
Late Art Nouveau or early Art Deco era French table lamp made of wrought iron with a three cornered base rising in an Eiffel Tower shape and housing between each section flowers and leaves of roses.
The three branches at the top, each ending with a rose leaf, extend to form the holder for the heavy guage and unusually shaped pâte de verre glass shade which is signed Lagny.
Primarily pearly white, the glass is suffused with a mottled pale pink and features colourful splashes of purple and green towards its edge. Whether the lamp is lit or unlit, these colours look most attractive.
Just a touch below 39 cm in height to the pinnacle of the shade and dating from around 1920.
