Little Girl, Big Snowball*

Item Description

Delightful little table lamp by the Paris based Italian sculptor Aristide de Ranieri (1865-1929).

Made of spelter and depicting a smiling young girl rolling along a large snowball.  She is wrapped up against the cold with a long dress, hooded shawl and cloggs on her feet but her little podgy arms are bare from the elbows down.  Behind her she has left a footprint in the snow.

Signed on the side of the base.  Ranieri was best known as an Art Nouveau artist but this lamp probably dates from around 1920 when Art Deco was just emerging. 

In good condition with a little of the original paint finish showing just a small amount of wear here and there.

Approximately 29 cm long by 23 high and recently professionally rewired with three core cable incorporating a switch.  

Ref: 12589
