French “Fer Forge” Table Lamp*
Rather striking French table lamp fashioned from wrought iron around 1920.
Many of these “Fer Forge” lamps were made in the early Art Deco era and in a great variety of designs. This one however is unusual as it is a simple square column with a pattern of beading running the full length on all four edges. The base is square, rising slightly towards its centre in a shallow pyramid style which sets off the stem of the lamp very well.
The original glass shade, signed Verrerie d’Art France, is coloured in very pleasing orange and dark blue sunset shades and looks most attractive when lit.
Height to the top of the glass is around 40 cm and the base is 13.5 cm square.
Rewired with three core cable to meet current standards and with an in-line on/off switch.
