Art 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.
