American Art Deco 'Outsider-Art' Bakelite Lamp with Original Painted Shade.

US$1,650

About

This bold Art Deco 'Outsider-Art' lamp with its keystone form sits on a stepped base and the whole is constructed from laminated burgundy/brown Bakelite sheets. The base has an aluminum and Bakelite switch on the foot and is topped with a color-coordinated finial carved from solid Bakelite/Catalin. The beautifully decorated fiberglass shade with hand painted areas of red, orange and yellow bounded by swirls of gold is edged with complimentary gold whip stitching. The shade shows only minor age, still retains strong color and displays beautifully whether it is switched on or off.
