This beautiful piece consists of a patinated bronze female figure holding an urn with a glass flame, which serves as a lamp, all standing on a tall and finely decorated wooden plinth.
The plinth is crafted from ebonised wood, set on a slim bronze base with paw feet. This wooden plinth is mounted, on its front and back, with black white-veined marble and a patinated bronze profile of a man, framed within gilt bronze medallions. On the sides, there are patinated bronze mounts of lions’ heads, set against crossed sceptres and strapwork.
The patinated bronze sculpture of a young, classical woman stands atop the plinth. She assumes a contrapposto pose, with her right leg carrying the weight of her body and her left leg bent at the knee. Her hips are turned slightly, highlighting the curve of her form. The dress she wears clings to her body, further emphasising her idealised body. The woman lowers her eyes away from our gaze. In her raised arms, she holds a classical urn, which produces a large flame. This flame is crafted from opaque glass, and serves as a lamp. Once it is turned on, the light produced will illuminate the glass with a warm colour, imitating fire.
With its sculptural female body, this lamp will add a classic sense of beauty to the room in which it is placed.
