Normal 0 false false false EN-AU X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 An exceedingly rare and breathtakingly beautiful original Art Deco Diana lamp (known in the U.S. as a Frankart Nymph lamp) dating to the late 1930’s in a superb combinationof gleaming chrome and deep brown/deep mottled brown bakelite – a particularly stunning example. Standing at 58.5cm, the lamp features a stepped chrome and bakelite base, the bakelite component with concentric horizontal ribbing. The Diana figurine is surmounted by a bakelite and stepped chrome gallery support and a chrome gallery. The exceptionally impressive visual impact of the lamp is further enhanced by its absolutely sublime rare Czech multipoint star-shaped shade in extremely heavy cased “end of the day” glass, the truly extraordinary type of art glass for which Czech glass makers became renowned during the 1930’s. The number of superb vibrant colours employed in the making of this extraordinary shade is virtually uncountable but comprises several different hues of green – emerald, lime, jade - together with many colours from the warmer spectrum: gradients of yellow, tangerine, coral and red, and with a scattering of royal blue and deep blue - making it truly breathtaking both when lit and unlit. The lamp has recently been professionally rewired with a luxury quality deep brown braided twisted cord appropriate to the era and in perfect harmony with the chrome and brown bakelite but still retains its original deep brown bakelite plug, and it has deep brown felt beneath the base for furniture protection. Last but not least, the lamp has another superb rare feature: an original 1930’s 12-sided inline switch in dark mottled brown bakelite, with on/off buttons in black bakelite. Dimensions Height: 58.5cm Base diameter: 16.5cm Shade: H. 16.5cm x max diameter 16.5cm Inline switch: 6 x 2cm Condition The lamp is in absolutely superb condition, the chrome is gleaming bright and mirror-like, the bakelite glossy and free from chips with only a virtually unnoticeable small semi-circular hairline and two minuscule flakes to the lowermost edge on the back of the bakelite foot. All white/dark/coloured marks/patches are merely reflections. As with the majority of these sand-castings of the era, the Diana figurine has the typical minute surface pinpricks and the usual casting marks perceptible only on close scrutiny - but on this example almost exclusively to the back of the figurine. The shade is in perfect condition with only the usual nibbles around the collar, invisible when in place.
