Sold on 23rd March 2014

This figural Art Nouveau oil lamp was made in the USA and dates from the 1880s – 1890s.

The font has an embossed leafy design around the centre. This central band has been etched and then the embossed design has been hand painted in a gold colour to highlight the pattern. The top and bottom sections of the font have then been painted a vivid orange and the same orange colour has been used as flourishes around the centre of the font to further highlight the embossed pattern.

The figural stem is known as “Grape Harvest”. It shows a young boy eating grapes and trying to keep them out of reach of a goat. The figure has a gold painted finish.

The stepped base is black painted cast iron.

The antique kerosene lamp is fitted with a new burner, wick and chimney. The burner is decorated with floral embossing that goes very well with the decoration on the font and further adds to the attractiveness and appeal of the lamp.

The overall condition of this figural Art Nouveau oil lamp is very good to excellent without any chips, cracks or damage of any kind.
