US$16,500

About

Machine Age Art Deco Frankart "Spirit of Modernism" skyscraper table lamp #L215, Arthur von Frankenberg, 1929 One of the few true early original iconic skyscraper period designs for lighting, along with Nessen & Kachinsky. But much more conceptually Architectural. Patented Design by Frankenberg, for his Frankart Company 1928, in production circa 1930-1931 catalog. This is a very good example; with excellent mold, thick original "Frankart" green enamel and crisp raised signature. Weighs in at over 8 pounds, a very substantial table lamp, in a striking futuristic "Metropolis" design.. One minor fissure to enamel in rear left corner, minor scattered abrasions & losses from age & use, as pictured. Signed correctly, as pictured. Impressive height at 15.5", no shade, unwired. Original enameled brass socket. You rarely come across these Originals, in this condition, or any original condition, in the public market.
