Deco spelter figure table lamps: Produced for home
decoration in the 1920s and 30s and originally sold in
department stores, these small scale electrified sculptures
perfectly capture the spirit of the age. This romanticised time
of luxurious transatlantic ocean liners, wild jazz music,
cocktails and flappers, Hollywood and divine decadence was
captured in these spelter (also in bronze and ceramic, often
referred to as lady lamps) ladies, with the usually unclothed
young women holding aloft marbled or frosted glass globes until
the glass got broken or they were no longer considered
fashionable and were then banished to a cupboard or put into
storage...but not anymore! Since the late 1970s these metal
beauties have been rediscovered and once again their dimly lit
glass globes and glinting metallic finishes are adding a touch
of Art Deco glamour to homes all around the world.
